Default Weekend Excursion

Took some of the gang to Frank Lloyd Wright's architectural wonder Fallingwater, in SW PA's mountain area. The only way to see it is through a guided tour, interesting as all get out on why and how it was built. I highly recommend a visit if you get a chance. Sorry, no interior photos allowed.

I always thought FLW had some really cool stuff. I actually skipped over the text and went straight to the pics and recognized the place. Never been there, but have seen photos of it before. Very cool!

It's amazing that place was designed and built like 90 some odd years ago. It's truly ahead of its time.

I've seen a documentary about it. I have always been a fan Wright's work. Looks like a fun trip.
