It sounds like an interesting challenge -- staging an authentic-looking zombie apocalypse while not scratching up any of Grizzly Creek Lodge's nice new furniture. But that's exactly what Jon Cooke has spent the past 5.5 weeks doing -- transforming this family-friendly area into a six-acre wide kill zone.
We all are familiar with Día de los Muertos -- the white face paint, the illustrations of grinning skulls, the panoramas of skeleton musicians and dancers. However, there is still great confusion in America about what this holiday actually signifies.

For most people on the planet, Halloween will end at the stroke of midnight tonight. Once the witching hour passes and it's then officially November 1, the masks come off, the costumes get packed away and we then turn our attention to all of the other holidays that loom on the calendar. Mind you, I said "most."
