William, Weston and Evellyn decided to spend Christmas on the ski slopes of Durango, Colorado. So they packed up their Mom and Dad and headed West, which is fitting for a young man - well, actually a couple of young men and their sister. Mom took photos along the way with her iPhone. (She had forgotten any other camera!) And so we present this diary of their journey. Just move your mouse over the descriptions in the left column and see the wonders pass by in the window to the right. And turn your sound for a touch of Willie Nelson.
