On Friday Traci treated us to a tour of Taliesin West. This had been on our "to do in the Phoenix area" for quite some time.


It was pouring rain at the start of our tour which, in keeping with the philosophy of Frank Lloyd Wright was half-inside and half out-. By the end the rain had tapered off and we were able to close the umbrellas.

The construction of the walls is of native desert stone

The candles on the patio were drowning.

The desert view toward Phoenix

Above and below are two of several Chinese theatre scenes.

One of the things I found intriguing was the mix of Asian (Chinese and Japanese) and Native American art and artifacts.

The "Sculpture Garden" and some of my favorite details:

Cabaret Theatre. Wish we could have stayed for dinner!
