It is a nice place to stop in and see, but I wouldn't really call it a gallery, it is more of a store with some photos on the walls.

Books galore, photographs of Ansel Adams and many more, nice pottery and jewelry, as well as little gifts and mementos. Has a bit of an intellectual feel to it.

This lovely gallery and shop is a must see while you are in this area - even if you are just hot and sweaty, go in and cool off. Keep your young kids by the hand but make sure they learn who Ansel Adams is,...More
