    Hi Martin & Louise,

    Sorry for the delay in getting back to you - all that catch up at work after
    my time off...Of course all the new stress simply means that I now have to
    plan another trip to Fourpeaks (sooner rather than later) to get my dose of

    I just wanted to take a moment to tell you how wonderful our time was at
    Ridge Camp. Sundancer and I had a beautiful week - each day was a true
    jewel. Looking back on it, I believe that we probably hiked well over 5
    miles each day - yet I haven't been so relaxed in a long time. It's truly
    amazing how nice it is to just spend some unstructured time. I took time
    for just pleasure reading and enjoying the fabulous views, trees, birds, and fresh air. Sundancer's favorite part was probably the frogs by the river...

    The time went way too fast! Here are some photos from our time at the camp.

    warm regards,
    Lee Ann

    Hi again Martin & Louise,
    Well, I saw an ad (I think it was from LLBean) that said something like
    "Your favorite summer place is just a sweater away from becoming your
    favorite fall place."

    Although this did not entice me to buy any sweaters (I have lots) it did
    spur me on to book antoher little trip to Four Peaks.

    I'd like to reserve Ridge Camp for Sundancer & myself arriving in the
    afternoon on Friday October 5 and departing Monday October 8. Let me know
    what you need for a deposit and I will send off a cheque.

    thanks so very much!
    Lee Ann

    Thanks for the note Martin - it was a pleasure to host your every-26-year
    thanksgiving dinner at Ridge camp. You really shouldn't wait so long again
    before enjoying it up there.

    Speaking of Ridge Camp - I would like to reserve it for Friday August 16 - Saturday August 24
    [2002]. As I mentioned for a couple of the days I will have a
    few friends up, the rest will just be Sundancer and I again. Do you want me
    to send a deposit?

    I just took my film to be developed so will send more photos when I get it
    see you sometime soon - I am going to try and come up in the winter/spring
    somewhere along the way.

    Hi again Martin -
    I am just putting the package together right now. I think you will like the
    photos - a good mix, although Sundancer takes fewer pictures of me than I
    take of her ...

    What address should I send it to?

    Hi Martin,
    I hope you are well and that you had a pleasant and peaceful holiday season.
    As promised, here are some photos from my last three trips to Ridge Camp at Fourpeaks--a true medley of seasons . . .
    Now all I need are some Winter and Spring photos. I'll have to work on some dates!
    Hope to see you soon,
    Lee Ann & Sundancer

    Hi Martin - glad to know that they made it ok!
    Sundancer is a "McKenzie River Husky" crossed with "Inuit Dog" (that's the
    piece that has the questionable wolf heritage - I personally don't think it
    is any closer than a hybrid grandparent). She was bred by a sled dog racer
    in Telluride Colorado. I usually just refer to her as a "Sled Dog".

    hope to visit again soon!
