We visited Mil Plant (now 91 years old) last month at her cozy home in Clark, Colorado – a few miles north of Steamboat Springs. Mil has a lovely cabin, a few yards from her daughter's home (Barb, and husband Charlie). It is surrounded by trees, very quiet and secluded. I took this photograph of Mil when she and Barb visited us at our campsite in Steamboat Lake State Park. A side benefit of our trip was to enjoy the beautiful golden aspen, at peak color in the high country of Colorado. Mil is in good spirits and good health, except for chronic balance problems necessitating the use of a cane.
Mil would surely appreciate hearing from her long-ago New England friends. Let me know if you would like her address.
