On a gray and drizzly day in 1983, writer Alice D’Alessio and her math professor husband, Laird, made their way down a curving, tree-lined driveway on their way to a picnic.

Emerging from the trees, Alice had her first glimpse of the valley that would become a twenty-five-year labor of love for the couple. Details, below.
