We were looking for a lunch spot in Basalt and happened up a hill into a modern neighborhood. Smack in the middle of it was this quaint, ancient-looking log homestead. There were signs warning against trespassing so we stayed in the car for pictures. The tree made for less than ideal viewing. The ore-cart was nice.
The timbers were large.
Notice the square notch work. It is disappointing that in the noonday sun, the sod roof ---which truly made this home so interesting for us---does not really show up.
