It meant missing out on the little Trick-or-Treaters who come to our door. I was a little sad about that as I love to see the little ones and pass out goodies!
We got left at 3:30.
The next morning, on to Wisconsin. The barn on 151 continues to deteriorate
We passed this odd scene. A plane is parked right by an inn. I had to find out about it. You can read about it here.
Along the way, you will see a few odd things. I don't know what they are. Planters?
We parked and went into the house. Actually, not the house itself, but the entrance to where you go to the house.
Builder Alex Jordan worshiped the famous architect, Frank Lloyd Wright and hoped for his approval to build this house. Supposedly Wright looked at the plans and told Jordan, "I wouldn't hire you to design a cheese crate or a chicken coop. You're not capable."
That made Alex Jordan so mad! On the drive back on Highway 23, Jordan pointed to a spire of rock and told a friend "I'm going to put up a Japanese house on one of those pinnacle rocks and advertise it."
The "house" itself is atop Deer Shelter Rock, a column of rock. Additions were made to the original structure and other buildings added over the course of several decades.
The house was weird. No way around that. I just could not live here.
Glass bottom to look at the forest below.
All kinds of twists and turns around the place. Steps here and there. Little alcoves and nooks and crannies every which place. So many pianos and other music machines.
Well, we were ready to head out and go on to see our children and grandchildren.
And nearby, Taliesin, Frank Lloyd Wright's Wisconsin home, a 700 acre National Historic Landmark with 6 structures he designed.
The Bible also tells us about 2 builders.
