Cabin, August 2014


This was another August trip to the Cabin. This trip lasted from 09 August to 15 August, 2014. Unfortunately, this and some other trips never got properly documented. There are, however, photos, so those will be included even though a story cannot be written at this late date. At least for these photos there are captions that were created at the time. From the captions and other trips, most of the photos can be easily understood!

Main Cabin room closed up.

The Cabin

Below are some shots of the Cabin taken for some reason. Perhaps for documenting the current state. They are included here for precisely that reason. These can be compared to later photos to see how it is holding up and/or the changes that have been made.
