" See ya there!"
some great pics "out there" on the web from folk who have tripped out to the Palace
for their own walk abouts!
Most of the images can be found on "FLICKR", & it's refreshing as well as encouraging for
all of us in the "P.D.R.P" to see & share what our "visitors" find interesting, & memorable
about their trip to the palace project, so take a walk through some of these albums, my
special faves are "Trixipinks" images of the fire-place in the "Devil's Den", & the "Ticket
booth" at sun-set, Beutiful.
For a virtual visit, check out David Hilbmann's skills at " http://photosynth.net" this, is
