go west, middle-aged man
April 10, 2013
Just back from my first trip to the southwest, visiting Arizona and New Mexico. We flew into Phoenix and stayed in Scottsdale at the beautifully renovated mid-century modern Valley Ho. Chris and I visted Taliesin West the next day to bookend my trip to Taliesin Wisconsin about 7 years ago. The Taliesins are similarly interesting and uncomfortably cultish to my eyes and ears. It was hot, dry and exposed on that desert to the east of Scottsdale.
