Fallingwater Bus Trip Scheduled for Oct 17th!!

Mark your calendars for Saturday October 17th! CPS has reserved a bus to go to Fallingwater in Pennsylvania. It is considered a crown jewel in historic homes built not only in the USA, but around the world. Anytime of the year it looks spectacular, but the Fall is a very special time. The Fallingwater has what all photographers seek: a nice setting, a wonderful exquisite waterfall, easy access, precise location where to shoot from, and a spectacular surrounding area with seasonal blooming flora maintained & designed by their renowned in-house horticulturist.
If you haven't visited Fallingwater, it really should be on your bucket list. Link to Fallingwater;
We will also make a late afternoon stop at Kentuck Knob : Although smaller than Fallingwater, it is also designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and is not that far from Fallingwater, maybe a 15 minute drive. Link to Kentuck Knob; CPS has reserved the same bus we took to Greenfield Village a few years ago. The cost is only $30 a person and that includes drinks and snacks provided by CPS.
Check out our calendar for the trip itinerary and for more information about the trip including signing up for a tour of the home which will be an extra $20 per person (minimum 20 people committing to an advance registration 6 weeks in advance) max 14 people on each tour.
