Newport Mansions: The Elms

Saturday, November 2nd, 2013

We did the self-guided tour at The Elms, and as I was peaking out the windows from the second floor, I realized that I was missing the last moments before the setting sun fell behind the trees. I raced through the rest of the rooms, and out the back door to see that The Elms’ facade (or is that technically the back of the house?) was brightly lit with the golden oranges of a gorgeous sunset! I only had a few minutes to take a few pictures before the sun set behind the trees. The Elms was no longer glowing, but it was still gorgeous … and then the clouds started to put on a show for us.
