~~<p>Every year since 1984, the state Department of Land and Natural Resources has come out with a calendar and every year it's a thing of beauty and scholarship.</p>

Underlying the stunning photos by Ric Noyle and text by Hallett Hammatt is a message of hope, the idea that we can learn, or relearn, to take care of ourselves.</p>
