It's been a while since I've been published in the New York Times. This was kind of a surprise. (It was also in the print edition)

Interesting! The best ski resorts you've never heard of, as seen in NY Magazine. #skiing

Everyone should take this southern Utah national-park road trip at least once in a lifetime! #travel
Southern Utah sports five showoff national parks, and that brings up a question for time-crunched travelers: Which should I see? Zion’s cliff-enclosed canyon? Hoodoo-filled Bryce Canyon? Capitol Reef’s soaring rock faces? A carved plateau at Canyonlands? Funky formations at Arches? My solution: I set a course to visit them all in one road trip.

My story on restaurants that are worth going the middle of nowhere for is published! If you want to add more favorites, please do in the comments. Now to begin the lifelong task of visiting all these places (I've been to five): https://www.yahoo.com/travel/restaurants-in-the-middle-of-nowhere-that-are-worth-98749612112.html

Whale-watch week, Dec. 27-31, is prime time to spot migrating leviathans while stretching your legs on a beautiful shore.

Ever have one of those days when you hear from someone who has an item you lost TWO YEARS AGO and wants to give it back to you? That was my day today. #goodsamaritan

I had a great time researching these under-the-radar ski resorts across America. Now I just need to hit the slopes! #skiingdestinations  
Days are shorter, temps are falling, and the year is almost over — it’s time to plan a ski vacation. But if you always gravitate toward well-known big-name resorts, you’re missing out. Here are some outstanding resorts that fall under the radar.
