I checked the library, to see if they had any information on hiking trails, but they didn’t have anything.  I did get a book on Arizona ghost towns, so I will be checking out a few of those.

The librarian was very helpful.  It was a man.  I don’t think I’ve ever met a male librarian.  But he made me a color copy of a map of Arizona and told me a few places not to miss, I hadn’t even heard of the one place.  Fountain Hills, or something like that.  It is the biggest fountain in the world, in a lake, and it goes off every hour.  I will try to find that on the GPS.

Frank Lloyd Wright was a genius.  Anyone who has visited Fallingwater in PA would understand.  I was playing with my GPS and found something called the Frank Lloyd Wright Spire.  I decided to see what it was all about.

It is not by FLW, but was designed by two people who studied under him.  I will be going back there in the daylight, to be able to see the entire park area properly.

It also prodded my memory and I remembered there was a house here in Arizona somewhere.  When I read the info marker at the Spire park, I found out Taliesin West is in Scottsdale, which is part of the Phoenix metro area.  I will be putting that on my list of must see places.

This picture is for Jen, the wretched Yankee fans are all over!  lol
