After, we drove directly to Desert Palms, googling Lloyd Wright scandals along the way. They glossed over all of this/stuff on the tour, and even now a quick internet search shows that there are plenty of Lloyd Wright loyalists who refuse to admit that he was kind of a shithead. Good architecture does not have to come from a good person, people. Ain't no denying his architectural contributions.
Here's B hopping through the grounds.
This is what a shooting cactus looks like. I know because some lady got shooed away from it. And then later, we all wished she had taken a barb to the face as she let her toddler disrespect low-lying architectural gems. I was so annoyed by the mini-distraction ("mini" references the size of the child, the distraction itself was HUGE) during the tour that I meant to drop a line to the folks at T-West to tell them that toddlers shouldn't be allowed. Hmm. Still gotta do that. I ain't trying to be a baby-hater, all I'm saying is mind yo' baby.
I love this grumpy hippo. The look on his face tells wayward toddlers to bug off!
