I'm not going to put a lot of commentary here, but want to show you a bit of PDI and the desert immediately near it. When my sister Margaret died, this is where I headed to think. There's a real, tangible peace here. If you ever come you'll feel it too.
Here's some history from the National Park Service site that gives better information than I could.
So here we go:
|I've shown this before: the front of the Inn from the road.|
|A side terrace.|
|A terrace on the opposite side.|
|Photo taken with my back to the desert. The entrance to the far left, barely seen here, led directly into the bar.|
|This is the mural seen on the wall to the right in the photo above.|
|One of several hammered-tin light fixtures.|
|Glass panels painted by CCC workers in designs created by Fred Kabotie.|
|The restored soda fountain and snack bar. The furniture was built by the CCC and the place is authentic down to the original gray paint on the booths. Unfortunately, this is for show only. Milkshakes and burgers are no longer served here.|
