We have all admired the adored Christmas Villages with the collected houses and shops arranged in streets with lamp posts and trees. I had been assigned to write about a Train Village. No one could prepare me for the village I was about to see.

Doug passed away unexpectedly November 4, 2011 of cardiac and respiratory problems at a hospital in Morelia, Mexico, near the city he called his home, Patzcuaro, Mexico with his sisters by his side.   Anyone that knew Doug knew he was an intelligent, eccentric free spirit who loved to travel and hated to be tied down.  He had friends and acquaintances all over the world and definitely lived life on his own terms.  He moved to Patzcuaro, Mexico about 2 years ago and fell in love with the city, the people and everything about the simple lifestyle he enjoyed there.  He is now flying high, no longer tied to a body that was failing him and surely enjoying new adventures every day.

The Escalante-Dominguez Expedition of 1776

Two hundred and thirty four years ago this week, in the same year the Declaration of Independence was signed, a group of Spanish explorers entered present-day Utah Valley. Led by two Franciscan friars named Silvestre Velez de Escalante and Francisco Dominguez, the expedition was launched to find a northern path from New Mexico to one of Spain's newest colonies, California.
