Scenes from Sundance



This week I was charmed to visit the Sundance Resort in Utah, arguably Robert Redford's ultimate creative effort.

This breathtaking facility is his dream, his vision, and his gift to the creative spirit in all its forms.


Designed as a center for the independent film arts, its natural surroundings remain true to Bob's reverence for the planet and its wondrous beauty.



But apart from nature herself, the Sundance facility is as lovely a place as anyone could imagine.



There is an apparent respect for vintage, and natural building materials. For aesthetic crafts and decoration.



It's a place to get the fires of your mountain cabin lust both fanned and fulfilled. Its simple buildings, rooms, and furnishings do nothing less than inspire the pursuit of that which is useful, beautiful, and enduring.



Enjoy just a few delightful scenes from Sundance!


















A few resort cabins.








A gem almost hidden in the trees.


















The coffee shop deli with it's vintage sign and international clocks.









The General Store.

















Only one of a few wonderful restaurants.

Happy Birthday Bob!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed the tour.
Ciao! for now!

I've heard of Sundance but had no idea how large and rustic the place was.
It would be wonderful to spend some time there; glad you shared your photos.
