I noticed today that someone bought this book, Mary Colter: Architect of the Southwest from my Amazon store today. It reminded me how much I enjoyed the books (there was a PBS special, as well) after I had visited the Grand Canyon for the first time. You can’t travel the great tourist locations of the Southwest without rubbing up against much of Colter’s architecture.
She also designed Hermit’s Rest at the Grand Canyon, which is one of my favorite places to visit. There is something amazing about sitting on the stone porch as the the sun sets over the canyon and the ravens cackle.
