I have driven past this lovely ghost of a home so many times. It sits slightly uphill of a curve in the road. Paint peeling, vines growing on and through the windows. I have always wanted to stop and take a better look.
On one of those drives through Swan Valley, my daughter mentioned that see too has always wanted to stop. So I pulled through the curve and down the dirt road right up to the house. It was just as I thought. Beautifully worn and ghostly. We took photos, the light was beautiful.
Inspired, I told the ladies, "We are going on a field trip". We packed up my car with our favorite clothes, hats, and jewelry and set off for Brokedown Palace. The views were stunning, the light was amazing and our crew had a great time. Sometimes, you just have to stop and take that dirt road.
