That's a cool image... Peops stayed in the wig wams or are they just decorative?
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Jacquelyn,oh yes, you can stay in them.

What a great picture and you were lucky nobody in the picture. LOVE the treatment. Of course I had to google it and when 'we went inside' it was like entering our apartment.... the same seize shower/bathroom... you did well here Frank. Did you stay overnight?

Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Astrid, no we didn't stop there, Elizabeth took me to see it, the cars were great.
They do look funny with card outside Frank, but what fun, did you stay here?
Frank L Croston.: It all seemed to fit, strangely, Andrew, no we had stayed somewhere else.

Neat idea, love the image. Did you & your squaw stay in one I wonder?
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Chris, no, we had stayed elsewhere that day.
A photographers' Heaven - wasn't it?! I really LOVE this image, Frank - Looks straight out of the 60's - and the clouds are the icing on top! smile

Almost impossible to age this. How wonderful all those old cars were there and the place was not cluttered with SUVs. The wigwam supports almost look as though they are supporting the overhead power line smile I've never seen air con in a wigwam before!
Frank L Croston.: Elizabeth knew of this place, Alan, you did sort of step back in time...There were many more cars, that you can't see here.
More fun than a travelodge Frank
Frank L Croston.: That rather depends on who is with you in the Travelodge, Bill....smile

...but, no goose's bridle!

Love the accessories [cars], Frank!
Frank L Croston.: The cars were great, a lot more than you can see in this shot, Ray, I had to Google that expression, never come across it before...smile
Now this is really different, what a great idea
Frank L Croston.: I thought so, Martin, great place.
How cool that there were antique cars parked here during your visit. Looks like a flash from the past not the present.
Frank L Croston.: I think the cars are there all the time, Mary, it did add to the atmosphere of the place.
A really cool place to stay Frank. Love your picture and the clouds looking like smoke signals
Frank L Croston.: It would be, Janet, thanks, I didn't think about smoke signals! smile
Good shot Frank, the wigwams are a bit like the trend over here now to go to camping type places to stay that have all mod cons, they call it 'glamour camping' or 'glamping' for short, our daughter and her husband do it quite frequently.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Brian. Camping is something you enjoy afterwards in my experience, maybe 'glamping' is the future...Like Garlic bread. smile

What a great looking place
Frank L Croston.: It was,Anne, we had some fun with the old cars.
He,he! Only in America!
Frank L Croston.: Indeed, Tom.

Ah this is rather an tents moment.
Frank L Croston.: Oh dear....But thanks anyway, Richard.
i would love to stay in one of the wigwams Frank...
they go to great lengths to preserve the look of the 60's with the old cars...
your treatment of this image is right on....petersmile
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Peter, yes they did a good job with the cars.
I like how the tipis match the bushes...
Frank L Croston.: Yes, I noticed that myself, Larry, attention to detail...smile
