I just love the unique stone and tile on this former Tudor home that has been renovated into high end condos. Balbrae, an estate in Bloomfield, CT, was the home of George Jackson Mead. Mead was inventor of the Wasp airplane engine and founder of Pratt & Whitney Aircraft. Before the main home was divided into 4 units and 54 more units were built on the 13.5 acre property Mead entertained Amelia Earhart, Charles Lindbergh and Igor Sikorsky among other air industry elite. Originally built in 1929 its transformation was complete in 1981. #Bloomfield

This amazing photo was recently submitted by Emily Dickey. While visiting #BryceCanyon #NationalPark, she hiked down to the iconic Thor's Hammer to capture the sunrise. “As the sun slowly rose, the rocks and fog started to glow,” Emily said. “There's something enchanting about Bryce Canyon covered in a new snowfall, it's simply magical to watch the landscape come to life at sunrise.” Photo courtesy of Emily Dickey (@ienjoyhiking).
