    Guest Book Entry:
    A total escape. Lots of hiking, reading, painting and relaxing. It was such a beautiful spot. We were content to just sit on the porch and observe all the beauty with the changing of the day. The starts were amazing as well. We look forward to seeing Fourpeaks in the Autumn and Winter.

    Dear Hugh, [Thanks for your email inquiry.]
    Hugh--I don't have your name down in my file, but I think
    you were at New Camp with Patrick in May '98. If so, I owe
    you both an apology for never having posted the fine water-
    colors and photos. But I had no text to go with them. If
    the watercolors are yours email me a phone contact. I'd like
    some copy to go with--it would be nice to add to our pages.

    Martin And Louise,
    Just wanted to drop you a note and let you know what a wonderful time we
    had over New Year's. We spent a great deal of time reading and relaxing. In
    addition, you will see from the enclosed pix for your guest book, we did a lot of
    hiking. We didn't realize how high up we were until we got to the top of
    Wainwright Mountain and looked down at your house! We also spent a day
    climbing to the top of Ebenezzer.

    Even without all the plants in bloom we found a couple of things to paint.
    (I've enclosed copies of those as well) I even painted on some birch bark and
    was really pleased with the results, not that either of us are painters.
    We both wanted to thank you and Louise for the get together on New
    Year's Eve. (You have to send me the name of that Italian wine, It really was
    delicious.) It was a wonderful way to end the year. You were both such gracious
    hosts and we enjoyed chatting with Fred and Willow. In fact we are planning to
    have dinner with them here in New York soon. Thanks again for everything.
    Fourpeaks is truly a magical place.
