Best of Richinbar - January 2012
Having spent most of the past week in Memphis TN on business (with nightly blues pilgrimages to Beale Street => http://www.bealestreet.com/wordpress/
), needed to stretch the legs and soak up some "outdoors".
Curiosity about a Frank Lloyd Wright disciple, Paolo Soleri, and his "Arcosanti" architecture/ecology urban fusion experiment just north of Cordes Junction (check out => http://www.arcosanti.org/
and http://www.archdaily.com/159763/paolo-s ... ge-of-man/
) was our agreed primary destination with a back-up plan to visit the Richinbar sites. Packed up the F-150 and Lynn and I were off to explore!
It's always good to have a back-up plan...
Upon arrival at home, I had to dig up a news article about a 1930's Richinbar resident reminiscing about life in this mining community (check out => viewtopic.php?t=4673#p46847
and download the article). Certainly allows you to connect with the past life of this ghost town.
