My dear sister April invited us to join her at the Calistoga Ranch. Even with threatening rain we hit the road and drive to through the beautiful wine country.  St. Helena was decked out in Christmas decorations and was filled with people with shopping.  Then we turn up the road to the ranch and encounter nature in all its glory.  A turkey vulture enjoying his lunch of expired deer.  It was a awesome and gory site.  Then we enter the Calistoga Ranch, impeccably groomed grounds and smiling faces greet us.  We feel like celebrities.  April directs us to not touch our luggage as the valet takes care of everything. 

They whisk us up the hill to the bar in a golf cart with great plastic door with spring-loaded doors.  The attentive bartender starts a fire for us and gets us hot drinks.  We get settled into our rooms and hop into our private hot tub as soon as we as we can get naked.

After a nap we take a short walk to the private restaurant and tuck into a wonderful dinner.  Then back to our wonderful little lodge.  Tomorrow, hiking and taking in the delights of the spa.
