Our Little Trip to Helena Modjeska's Arden

I'm feeling a little like Huell Howser (sure enough he's been there) but, after naming my twin peaks: Modjeska and Santiago, I had to follow it up and go there (there are a lot of loose ends I may eventually try to tie up re her and the Polish utopians).

Another nice photo of Modjeska:
