    La Posada, when you finally get there. Prescott's Hassayampa, the El T, and all the others that you mentioned were on my list for stopovers when I ran my ecotourism business (ecosouthwest.com) throughout the Southwest. The La Posada was certainly a treat for the clients, since with its establishment came the fabulous history of Mary Coulter. And since that phase of the tours was connected to the South Rim country, the clients were more than regaled about this chain-smoking, coffee-drinking matriarch of architectural design. I even had a contact in Gallup (New Mexico) who was once a Harvey Girl, and she would continue the discourse, there at the El Rancho. According to her spiel, if you worked for Mary you considered her akin to a drill sergeant and a tough SOB in all respects; otherwise, if you didn't work for her, she was a great gal to listen and talk to. Go figure! I mean, the difference between the two sorts who got to know this fantastic designer-turned-architect (though officially she was never degreed in architecture). Thanks for posting your comments, Azazello.

    Treat the world (yourself, and others) as part of a living organism. Everyone and everything will benefit.
