It was late afternoon and we were tiring, in spite of the arhchitectural brilliance of Taliesin West.
The line of cars, waiting just to enter the Grand Canyon, was an hour long.We sat patiently, awaiting our turn.
We walked back to the Maswik lodge and had coffee and danish in the small lodge.Everyone else was up and about. Two pools, tennis courts, exercise facilities and a restaurant and bar make this a comfortable place to stay. Several shiny new bank buildings, a huge sports arena and convention center compliment the state capitol building complex to make an attractive downtown area.
We had decided to make a pilgrimage to Frank Llloyd Wright’s “Taliesin West “ this afternoon. The sidewalks were awash with families and hordes of young people, streaming up and down the strip. At the Alladin, we bought some quarters and fed the video poker machines for an hour, enjoying a glass of wine, as we threw our money away. Sited on the brow of a desert bluff, (Taliesin is Welsh for shining brow) just below the crest of a nearby Mount McDowell, you can look out over 90 miles across the desert and seeTuscon,on a clear day. We were surprised to be able to sail through everything and make the “B” section” of our Southwest flight. Most of the rest of the gang had just arrived, in the last few hours, and looked pretty tired.


We browsed through Denny’s., had some good coffee and delicious maple fudge and then took pictures of ourselves standing in front of a large wooden bear and a replica of an old stage coach. You could but look and silently admire them as they sat there in quiet stillness and let the wind and the snow swirl through and across them. You find your self pulling madly on the crepe covers and throwing it onto the seats beneath you, in a mad frenzy. You first encounter the massive red sandstone pillars of “stagecoach butte, “ “the two mittens,” “rabbits ears” and many more colorful stone monuments. You can but gaze intently and try to capture the images in your minds eye, as you enjoy the vast panaroma before you. For $19 each, we sat down to coffee and an enormous selection, of every type of food available, in the many stations in the huge buffet.
Row after row of shops, like Nieman-Marcus, Nordstroms, Gucci and dozens of other fashion names command your attention.
They are varied in shape and a dusty vermilion in color.You can read images into them like you do when staring at the clouds. We sat for a time, at the end of the mall, waiting for the hourly performance of the “talking Roman staues.” They performed as they always do on the hour, never tiring of their own preprogrammed ribald comments and hearty laughter.
A heavy magnezium content colored some sands green, iron dyed them red and sulfur, a yellow to give the far away desert floor a multi colored hue in its vast expanse.
Carrot cake and coffee finished off this lovely repast, as we dined quietly, enjoying the momentary lull in the pace.


It is actually interesting and enjoyable, if you let yourself get into the madcap performance. We had coffee and muffins, in a small cafe, and then walked back into the casino area, to throw some more money into the video poker machines at Caesar’s. The place does that to you, brings you back to the things elemental like nature and religion. Brigham Young took over the reigns of the religion, which exists and prospers today as the Church of the Latter Day Saints. I find that if you step back about 12 feet from these works, and catch them at about a 45 degree angle, they snap into sharp focus from their diffused frontal perspective.
I was tiring and had come down with some malady or other from breathing all the recycled air during the last week. The indians had learned to scrape away the dark, “desert varnish,” that is a form of algae, and leave inscribed figures on the rock faces, depicting animals, rain and other tribal mysteries. After the gallery tour, we stopped at a small ice cream parlor, in Bellagio, and had coffee as we watched the swirl of people drift by. We walked through the busy casino area, of the Alladdin and rode the elevator to our aerie, where we settled in to let the sand man whisk us away.
