Outside House On The Rock

I shot these quite some time ago, but just found them.  While the interior tour of House On The Rock is used in the documentary (to humorous and a bit eery effect), only a smidgen of the exterior, also an awesome place to visit, is used.  That place just keeps going and going.  Enjoy, and … Continue reading

I don’t know why I am posting this other than that I ran across these photos recently and thought what nice houses they were.  Really, this is probably the least important posting ever, but they still are quite lovely homes. * * * * * *
