Looks like a house with tiered landscaping to me...

I'm guessing it's the Zane Grey home.

Or the Zane Grey Pueblo Hotel on Chimes Tower Road, just north of Avalon on the way to the Deacon Tubular Bell Carillon.

That's the same place.

Whoa, watch the language, bngbuck. I was just pointing out that despite your use of the word "or," you weren't actually providing an alternative. I'd also add that the information you offered was already contained in the link I provided. Perhaps you were just repeating it to demonstrate agreement with my conclusion? If so, then I thank you for your vote of confidence.

Hummer.....

Shit, a hotel ain't an alternative to a home, unless you really have a lot of money! I'm not quite to that place yet! It used to be Zane Grey's home, now it's a hotel. Grey's dead, by the way! Wrote a lot of western adventures like - Riders of the Purple Sage on the Rainbow Trail by the Light of the Western Stars! Kind of a long title, but paper was cheap back in those days! Grey gave birth to the Lone Ranger by the way!

A charming, pretty, old, place - fits like a glove into the ethos of Catalina Island and the ratty elegance of Avalon!!

Actually, the square thingy is the Chime Tower which houses the Deacon Tubular Bell Carillon.

Zane Grey's home is well south of it, but looks closer on the old postcard due to foreshortening.

Dave.....

Listen, Dave, we have got to be more accurate around here! Is it Chime Tower road or Chimes Tower road? And please get it damn fucking right this time, okay? It's been a few years since I've been to Avalon (travel on to Avalon?), but I remember that you come to the old hotel first, and then the Chime/Chimes/whatever Tower is a little farther north on the road out of Avalon - is that right? The Pueblo looks like something transplanted from San Ildefonso south of Santa Fe!

What in the name of Zen(e) ever prompted you to pick out a googlemap of that fusty old fossil as a puzzle piece? Have you thought about donating your brain to Science when you go to hell? If the microbiologists worked on it long enough, they might learn something useful!

Dave.....

Man, I like that toad from hell in the top picture! That's better than Filthy's snapping turtle by a horror movie factor of ten. What's it's name - as in what is it?

I have never taken on one of the silly pictures some of you folk use to characterize yourselves here, but I am reconsidering.....!

Woooooo hooooooo! I finally went to the dentist today after nearly 7 years and guess what? Only three little cavities. That's right, baby, no root canals for me!

Congratulations! So, will it be another seven years before you go again? Not that it's any of my business...


Uncertainty may make you uncomfortable. Certainty makes you ridiculous.
