In Los Alamos, California, the two-story Union Hotel’s decor is an ecclectic mix of wildwest and Victorian gingerbread styles. The bar is rustic and whimsical. A large moose head decorates a wall and a cello is somehow affixed to the ceiling. Swinging saloon doors lend an authentic charm. Sprinkled about the grounds are wood and wrought iron benches and a great deal of greenery climbs an arched bower. Vines climb the outer walls and also enthusiastically grow between the uneven floor boards of the outdoor walkways. In this shot, a tendril is attempting to wrap itself around the leg of one of the benches. By tomorrow, I’ll wager it will have succeeded.
