I recommend the Gallant Lady's cruise in the San Juan Islands. Read about it in your Travel Section last July (Travel Tips, July 24) and was there two weeks later. A welcome change of pace. Scenic, relaxing and excellent food. A true labor of love for Capt. Dick, his wife Lyn, family and crew. Nice people. A fun trip! For information, contact Gallant Lady Cruises, P.O. Box 1250, Vashon, Wash. 98070, or call (206) 463-2073. VIRGINIA McKINNEY Palm Springs

Arizona: hits and misses Regarding "First-Rate Journeys in the 48th State," Feb. 12: I wasn't sorry that the Travel section missed the best places for Mexican food in Phoenix and Tucson. We'll keep those to ourselves. But really, how could you miss the absolutely coolest place in Arizona? The historic Weatherford Hotel in downtown Flagstaff. A family-friendly restaurant for weary travelers and a comfortable hangout with loads of local color. Great food; great bands; great, great staff.

Crying foul over baseball issue A whole Travel section (March 2) devoted to baseball is just not right. Many have no interest in sports whatsoever. There is already another whole section devoted to sports every day in the Los Angeles Times. You have really disappointed me and many others, I'm sure. Leslie Daniels Palm Springs Local vs. longer trips The reader letter on Feb. 23 expressing great disappointment at The Times' selection of featured locations was perplexing.

If you've got a moment, you've got just enough time for “A Minute Away,” a new video offering from the Travel section. This week's destination is sleepy little June Lake , Calif., about 20 miles from the Mammoth Mountain ski resort. You may have seen this one here before, but it's 60 seconds of bliss that bears repeating. Last week's Minute, the first of the series, was Moscow in a snow storm. Whether you click June Lake or Moscow , you get a little slice of wordless, brain-cleansing, off-the-clock atmosphere.
