NATURE #102606







We took a trip this past weekend to visit the old homestead of design guru Russell Wright. He bought 75 acres in upstate New York back in the 40s, part of which, is an old rock quarry that had become a pond and stream complete with waterfalls. The house is perfectly sited on the edge of the quarry. In addition to his interest in design, he was also an avid naturalist who created scenic trails on the property to take advantage of it's proximity to the Hudson. Visit the website for more info.

I came here via Smarts and Crafts and I think I found them by blog hopping - honestly, I could spend hours nipping from blog to blog discovering creative people... Anyway, just wanted to say: lovely posts and great shots of Russell Wright's homestead.
