Zazzle has a nice selection of puzzles now in a variety of sizes with more pieces and updated cuts. Some with nice big pieces for youngsters, too.
Last weekend we went for a drive in search of Ellsworth, Nevada. It's in a beautiful area with lots of juniper trees tucked way out of the way in some hills
