According to wiki.pedia, a yurt is a portable, felt-covered, wood lattice-framed dwelling structure used by nomads in the steppes of Central Asia. It is also used by adventurous, food and wine-loving, fine dining, hikers/skiers/snowshoers in the mountains of Colorado. This particular yurt is at Tennessee Pass near Leadville, Colorado. There is a mile-long trail that must be hiked, cross country skied, or snowshoed (depending on the season) to get to the yurt (and yes, we just call it "the yurt").
The first photo I posted for the PJC on March 1st was taken from the yurt. My parents got us a gift certificate and we used it for our anniversary in July last year. It was a particularly soggy day, but still beautiful and the food was delicious. We hope to go back sometime-treatment and schedules permitting. Here is an article that gives you more insight into what the evening is like at the yurt.
