For Ordene's 80th birthday we got to travel to Holbrook! and stay in Winslow at one of my favorite places La Posada which is a rose among thorns, literally. Here is a small history lesson:
"Rated as one of the top 5 historic hotels in Arizona- La Posada was built in 1930 and was the last and most elegant of the Fred Harvey Hotels built by the Santa Fe Railroad. It was designed by Mary Colter- perhaps the greatest architect of the Southwest- as a fabulous Spanish hacienda."
Each time Tim and I stay there, they have added something new, renovations are slow due to funds and the massive undertaking. Here are some snapshots of the gardens, for some reason I took not one picture inside, I have no idea why.
And for good measure, a belly shot.
