Exploring Palm Springs: Journey to an Albert Frey Home, Part One
Approaching the drive...
above: this row of palm trees along the road were so majestic.
above: I set out up the enormous hill. The road is cut into the mountainside...
above: As I ascended up the hill I looked out over the side of the hill, looking down on the houses below.
above: I surprised myself at how high I was climbing. The curved road below looked sexy in a strange way.
above: as I reached the top of the road, the base of the home cane into view...
above: the rocks along the mountain side were jetting out ruggedly and seemed to tell a story.
above: Even at this height, palm trees were reaching high for sunshine.
above: Finally at the top, I found a variety of plants along a well manicured desert landscape. As the roof of the home came into view, I knew I was in for quite an architectural feast for the eyes. I hope you can join me on Thursday as I take you on a tour of "Russell House" itself, a fabulous example of Albert Frey's work. Today was just the scenic trip up the hill....
