Pandora's Box

Well-behaved women rarely make history.

Mountain Goat Lodge

Like the Gator Nation, it turns out the Cheese Nation is everywhere. My classmates during my dive certification class were Gina and D’Arcy, a charming couple who run the Mountain Goat Lodge, a B&B in Salida, Colorado that features (among other things)…wait for it…homemade goat’s cheese from the herd that lives on the grounds. And cheese making classes. Yes. I managed to fly halfway around the world and meet the kind of person who makes cheese on their diving holiday in Fiji. It’s a gift, what can I say?

But the lodge looks gorgeous and Gina and D’Arcy are a riot, so if you’re in the area, check it out. Local food, homemade cheese, animal-friendly, rave reviews on TripAdvisor, and access to all sorts of outdoorsy activities. My kind of place.
