"Mountain's LifeStyle"...Vail's Architecture

It's good to be back!

Here's a bit of images from Vail Village in Colorado. I love the mix of craft man style and traditional architecture. The integration of the local stones, large timbers and hand forged
iron work, gives the town a true rustic-elegant style. On the last image, the entry way of a bar; you can see the chunkiness of the pyramid columns and how it's supported by the gracefully carved heavy wood planks.

1. Entrance to a small Hotel or Inn.

2. A small bridge from main street.

3. The strait lines of a balcony.

4. Entry to a Bar...very important

Great Monday to you all...
