It is a beautiful, little inn and I envy those who were able to make use of it as an inn in its time, or just a place to stop and get lunch or a malted at the soda fountain.

Painted Desert Inn, Stairway to Old Hotel Room Entrances
View On White

Was watching a little of the movie in which Judy Garland plays a Harvey Girl and was reminded of the Painted Desert Inn, which was a Harvey institution during the late 40s through early 60s. I returned to those photos and worked on a few more, including this one of a small external stairway that leads past entrances to a few of the old hotel rooms. Intended to be viewed large. Loads of grain.
