The last time I was in Clayton, NM I enjoyed quick lunches and the such at the Eklund. This time I got to stay there. My sister-in-law, Vic was rather taken w/the few pictures I took of the place. So, this time around, I took more.
The building was built in the last 1800s. It’s been rather well upkept, considering you go through out the country and see abandoned places just like this all along the drive.
All along, I thought it was a tin ceiling, but it isn’t. It is all plaster. Which, makes it all more facinating and unique.
If anyone knows me, they know I love door knobs! The wood etching on the fireplace is very cool, and looked better in Black and White.
Again, the decorations/details on the ceiling are all plaster.
The fireplace is all marble. There are two in the dining room and one in the saloon (which I didn’t get to photograph, maybe next time!)
As I was driving down the 54, to my right it was as dark as night and to my left, completely sunny. And that produced a great rainbow – even with my 18 lens I couldn’t get the whole rainbow! (I did with my phone)
And that was my view to the front. And my long drive is finally over. For another 10 weeks.
