Yurts!

Flagstaff, AZ: In the surpisingly chilly highlands near Flagstaff, AZ, weary skiers are invited to take shelter in a surprisingly cozy Yurt. Inspired by traditional Mongolian structures, the Yurt has taken off as an inexpensive, enironmentally benign, and incredibly practical building.

The entire Yurt can be transported in the back of a pickup truck, or by a few horses, and it can be set up in a day. It's sturdy and warm enough to work as a year-round shelter with minimal maintenence.

If I ever get around to purchasing that dream ranch someplace, the first (and possibly only) thing I'm putting on it is a yurt!
