ALASKA'S RAIN FORESTS: BEAUTIFULAND DEVASTATING-SIGHTS

As an Alaska traveler, I really enjoyed the informative article "Secrets of the Rain Forest" (November, page 100) regarding Tongass National Forest (shown at right). I have experienced the devastating sight of clear-cut forests when flying into Ketchikan, but also realize that it is vital to the economy of the area as well. I would welcome more articles on the beautiful land of Alaska.

MAPPING A GHOST IN NEW MEXICO

Your December issue does a nice job on the state of New Mexico. The map ("Points West," page 52) might have included the strange but interesting ghost town of Steins, off Interstate 10 immediately west of Lordsburg. Dating back to the 1850s, this railroad townwith bordellos, bars, hotels-was abandoned around 1955. The current owners offer tours.

THANKS FOR A LEANER THANKSGIVING Re: "Thanksgiving, Light & Easy" (November, page 152). I cooked the turkey, dressing, roasted potatoes, and gravy. Everything turned out beautifully, and everyone at the table enjoyed the food. As a diabetic, I really appreciate any low-fat recipes, especially for the holidays, which can be difficult for those of us who must watch our intake of fat and sugar. The shorter cooking time for the turkey produced a very juicy, moist bird with great flavor.

A DELICIOUS VISIT TO CABO Re: "Cabo Grows Up" (November, page 24). On your recommendation, we visited Todos Santos recently to see the town and eat at the Cafe Santa Fe. We had a fabulous dinner that included such items as marlin sashimi with wasabi, grilled rack of lamb, vegetarian ravioli, and pasta with pesto. What a wonderful restaurant! Great food and ambience in a truly out-of-the-way spot. We'll definitely go back!
