Go East, Young Woman -- Day 2/192

Walk: JCCSF, Trader Joe's, Pets Unlimited
Distance: 3.5 miles and take yoga class

A yoga student recently returned from the quintessential summer vacation: Upper State New York. She sent photos of a few of the sites she visited.

Glen Iris Inn, formerly the country estate of William Pryor Letchworth, and part of 1,000 acre Letchworth State Park which he donated to the State of New York in 1906.

Frank Lloyd Wright's Darwin D. Martin complex in Buffalo, New York (1903-05; Prairie Style)
This is just the front of one building.  The complex extends to the side and back forever (26,140 feet to be exact). Other than our Marin Civic Center, I didn't realize Wright created large, sprawling buildings, particularly residences.

Sitting in the fog and wind out her, the pictures and stories of her trip made me yearn to be there - humidity, heat, mosquitoes and all.
