Description

It's a little dark inside but I'm pretty happy with how everything but the stairs came together. The photos are taken from two upper floors, I ran out of battery before getting down to the main floor. Photosynth gets a little confused by this jumping between floors sometimes in play mode. I wasn't sure what this would look like with all the interior timbers but I like it. It gives you a good sense of a very cool place to visit.

The photos are 21megapixels so don't forget to zoom in for details. There's a lot more than you see at the first zoom level.

I changed the slideshow mode(space bar to advance to next picture) to advance by filename. I didn't take the pictures in an order thinking I was creating a slideshow but this makes for a little more continious path than jumping around based on image proximity. Let me know if you like it in the comments.

Architecture from Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Old_Faithful_Inn
The inn's architect was 29-year-old Robert Reamer, an architect for the Great Northern Railway.

With its spectacular log and limb lobby and massive (500-ton, 85-foot) stone fireplace, the inn is a prime example of the "Golden Age" of rustic resort architecture, a style which is also known as National Park Service Rustic. It is also unique in that it is one of the few log hotels still standing in the United States.

Initial construction was carried out over the winter of 1903-1904, largely using locally-obtained materials including lodgepole pine (the bark was later removed in 1940) and rhyolite stone. When the Old Faithful Inn first opened in the spring of 1904, it boasted electric lights and steam heat.

The structure is the largest log hotel in the world; possibly even the largest log building in the world. In 2007 the American Institute of Architects conducted a survey to determine the 150 favorite buildings in America; the Old Faithful Inn ranked 36. The Inn, which was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1987, is itself part of the Old Faithful Historic District.

Very cool! I really like the angles and interesting "planes" you created with the camera. The depth and details is impressive. This rocks on some of the other ones I checked out, in both perspective and the quality of the images. Fun!

Ditto on the details being impressive. If you have some time I'd add a few more highlights.
