Photo; Running horses sculpture

After showing photos of the horse gargoyle sculpture at Indian Bend Wash, I thought I would post photos of another horse sculpture. These galloping horses are in front of the Doubletree Paradise Valley Resort, which is only 3 blocks from our house. It was originally the Loew's Paradise Valley Resort, but changed its affiliation to Doubletree.

The flowers around the statue change with the seasons, of course.

Paradise Valley is a suburb of a little less than 15,000 people in between Phoenix and Scottsdale. Its only commercial zoning is for 5 resorts. It has no stores, no gas stations, no banks, no parks, and no apartments. Across the street from this resort is a small collection of doctor's offices, most of whom are cosmetic surgeons. Those are the only offices of any kind in the town. Its home values are ranked as the 11th most expensive zip code in the country.

This week we are showing photos of the Italian village of Cernobbi on the shores of Lake Como on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

It looks like these horses are going to trample the flowers.
