This is Taliesin, the home of the brilliant architect Frank Lloyd Wright, and I had the chance to tour it! By accident. While sitting on the plane for two and one-half hours on the taxiiway at LaGuardia, I struck up a conversation with the woman sitting next to me. She said she was headed to Wisconsin to visit friends, and that they were going to Taliesin. I have known of this house, and the stories about it for years, but it was not in my mind exactly where it was. It is only one hour from Madison, where I have been staying. So, I woke the next morning, called them, and was able to get a reservation for a two hour tour, both inside and out. Unfortunately, we are not allowed to photograph inside the house, but it was just stunning to be able to have plenty of time to walk around in this amazing home. It is not possible to give you any idea of the structure in just one photograph, but this photograph probably gives the best sense of part of it.
