Delores and her husband Gary built this house over a 20 year span with the help of friends from time to time.
The balcony on the upper floor is so lovely. A sweeping view of the mountains, lots of comfy chairs, a fan if there are no breezes, lots of flowering plants.
Betty and I ate out here a number of times. It is a very calming and comforting space.
The guest bedrooms were downstairs and very comfortable. I was dubious about staying somewhere in July without air conditioning, but my fears were unfounded. Once the evening started, we opened our windows and let the cool air come in. Delightful. Sunset was very late and I didn't manage to stay up for it every night.
Here's a picture of the view so that you can imagine the sunset. I failed to bring a camera except for the one on the phone and it just wasn't up to the challenge.
Thank you, Delores and Gary.
And thank you, Betty, for facilitating such a wonderful trip.
