The picture above shows the amphitheatre-style seating around the patio behind the historic Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado. Will built this seating with stacked, natural Colorado buff flagstone.  The Stanley Hotel sits prominently on a hill above Estes Park. It was built by F.O Stanley, an inventor of the Stanley Steamer, a steam propelled vehicle.  Mr. Stanley was instrumental in establishing Estes Park. The television mini-series version of “The Shining” was filmed at the Stanley Hotel.
