Bucket Lists and Fallingwater

One of the things on my bucket list was a visit to Fallingwater, Frank Lloyd Wright's masterpiece in Mill Run PA on the Youghiogheny River.  So on July 5 I finally visited after trying once a few years ago and being turned away because we had no reservation.  It appears at that time we got bad information at the gate because for $8.00 and no reservation you can do a self-guided grounds tour.  You can actually walk right up to the house, you just can't go in!  Wish I had known this 4 years ago.  I really would like to go back someday and see the inside of the house.  I think this would probably have to be in the Fall because as spectacular as it looked in summer, I can imagine that seeing it in the Fall would be awesome.

Wikipedia has a nice write-up all about the design and building of Fallingwater.
