(LEONARD) We went in this room during our tour today. I found 2 frogs in the foutnain. I was sick but had a good time. The ranger played music on the big organ.

THE LIVING HALL SCOTTY'S CASTLE
Death Valley National Monument

The fountain that pours water over stone of native Jasper keeps the room cool in the heat of summer and also adds some humidity to the dry climate of the desert. The chandelier is hand-wrought iron trimmed with brass. The work was done by German craftsmen.
