CATALINA ROOM



















For the first time, I stayed at the Zane Grey Pueblo Hotel - http://www.zanegreypueblohotel.com/- when I traveled last week to Catalina Island. Zane Grey was an American novelist known for his westerns and this was his home on the Island.

The Hopi Indian-style Pueblo is located on this picture at the highest point of Avalon. It was quite a daily hike, plus there were an additional 28 steps to climb from the road to the doorstep!

I initially planned on painting through the evening, yet instantly fell asleep from all the hiking! Truly a peaceful place to stay without any phones nor televisions. If a guest could not handle the withdrawal, there is a small tv in the central, common living room.
