  2. A calendar shot — or perhaps a wall photograph. This is just beautiful.

    • I’ve thought about shooting that scene dozens of times and today the sky and the light were just about right.

  3. Prime real estate! No services though (which is what makes it prime!)

  4. What a beautiful place, and interesting construction. Would that be an open fireplace, heating in both directions, or might the smaller section we’re looking at be an addition? In any event, it took about two seconds of looking at it for me to remember this old classic.

    • I was not able to go inside, but I’d bet that it would have heating in both directions.
      Yes, the scene is perfect for that song!

  8. What a great place to live and such a superb backdrop. (I naturally assume, the building is deserted now).

    • Yes, it is. Wouldn’t it have been something to see the scene when the family lived there? I would bet they were gentle people.

    • I’d bet the old cabin was there in 1914. A lot of other things have changed around there though, but not in those mountains.

  18. A breathtaking shot indeed.

    That lone cabin does epitomize the frailty and the temporal nature of Man in the presence of nature, does it not? At the same time it also seems to salute Man’s conviction to continue to push his own boundaries….

    • I remember you were interested in the Indian tribes. This photo was taken on the Flathead Indian Reservation. There is a lot of beautiful country there and the reservation is quite large, 1,938 square miles.

  24. It would be so awesome to spend a few weeks in a remote house like this one. Just me and my thoughts, some time to reflect and soak up all that I have learned. Everybody needs a bit of solitude time and again.
