On the way home from Great Sand Dunes National Park, we stopped in Buena Vista for a spot of lunch. Buena Vista is a cute little mountain town that’s in the middle of reviving their riverfront property along the Arkansas River. What’s emerging in that pocket of town is really, really cool. They’re doing an excellent job with mixing styles of architecture, keeping the historic buildings, making things pedestrian friendly, and giving the area some charm with cute shops and restaurants within the residential neighborhood. We liked Buena Vista before, but this little chunk of town is really turning into something.
During this year’s stop in town, some new art had been installed – seating areas made to look like living rooms but made entirely out of decorative tiles and mosaic work. It was so fun and funky! While I might not want to sit on this stuff on a bright, sunny, hot day for risk of searing my tush off, it’s quite something to look at.
Fun and as cute as the sets are on their own, you really start to marvel when you get in close on the detail. There’s a ton of intricate mosaic work or painted tiles on each piece. Unfortunately, we had some time constraints on our drive home, so I couldn’t take it all in, but I did get a few shots of those details.
Just another fun find along our annual journey to and from Great Sand Dunes!
