Are you a Yurt-aholic? If so, you probably live West of the Rockies or, possibly, in Mongolia. The symptoms of the affliction are obvious. The photo above sets you into a shivered fantasy of escape, dreaming of how to bankroll staying in that circular canvas-y utopia forever. Those not afflicted look at the above and think, "Wow, does that thing have heat? How thin are the walls? Where's the front door? The bathroom?"

For those now jonesing to know, the above is the new "Adventure" yurt at El Capitan Canyon 20 miles north of Santa Barbara.

Yurtaholics can also get their fixes at the following places:
