This spectacular wine area winds among rugged limestone cliffs along the picturesque Duero River, which slices a fertile valley through the vast central plateau of the Spanish heartland. It was partly this natural beauty that prompted The New York Times to select the Ribera del Duero as one of its 52 Places to Go in 2018. Refectorio, a Michelin-starred restaurant at Abadia Retuerta Le Domaine, sources nearly all its ingredients from local suppliers.

By Nick Green | [email protected] | Daily BreezePUBLISHED: December 17, 2018 at 6:00 am | UPDATED: December 25, 2018 at 4:04 pm The aging 1950s Sears store at the south end of Del Amo Fashion Center in Torrance stands in sharp contrast to the rest of the now-sleek mall, recently revamped for the first time in decades at a cost of more than $300 million.

Uncovering approachable routes for the everyday climber in South Patagonia Author: Andrew Bascue Publish date: Feb 23, 2016 This story originally appeared in the November 2014 issue of our print edition. The wind was a phantom, raking across the Central Tower and curling into the grooves of the heavily textured orange granite, haunting every move and chilling us to the bone. It ripped back on itself, building speed through the gap between the North and Central towers. As the sun began to rise, rays etched an outline of the Central Tower on the enormous east face of Cerro Escudo far across the valley. I could imagine my position way down on the edge of the shadow. Little hairs on my neck stood on end as I contemplated the vertical distance to the summit. I belayed André Labarca up the third pitch of the Central Tower’s über-classic Bonington-Whillans (V 5.10, A1, 800m), wondering if we could climb 15 more pitches in this wind and survive the trip back … [Read more...] about Feature: Climbing Torres del Paine’s Secret Moderates
