If I had to list my favourite places on earth, this would rank near the top: La Posada in Winslow, Arizona. We've been staying in the onetime Harvey House since Allan Affeldt and Co., restored and reopened the place in the late 1990s. And it's been a mandatory stop on our winter migration to and from Laguna for the past 10 years. February 20, 2017
