A bit under 10 miles this morning. I went looking for a Frank Lloyd Wright house in the dark in a slightyl unfamiliar neighborhood near me and ended up running about a quarter mile up a hilly, winding dirt road only to realize it wasn't a road at all but somebody's driveway, I decided, "in for a penny, in for a pound" so I continued up the driveway until I got to the house. When I got to the end of the driveway there was a new-ish looking Rolls Royce, Mercedes G-Wagon, and a couple older SL convertibles parked in the turn around in front of their lawn tennis court. Rough neighborhood.
I did eventually find the FLW house
. I believe it's one of his smaller ones but it has a great setting - a nice large lot with some great looking trees nicely spread out. I want to run by again when there is a bit more light and try and get a couple photos. I knew this house was near me but didn't know exactly where and then I saw a recent article
about it and was inspired to look it up. Turns out, I've probably run past it a couple dozen times over the past few years. Photo gallery
There's another one of his houses
about a mile and a half further east but it's right off of a major road with no sidewalks or good running paths. Thankfully, that one is owned by a local university and they offer tours. I may have to bite the bullet and spend the $10 if I want to see it.
