Fresh snow up at this cabin as of yesterday :heart: our winter has been very, very dry with a record number of days without rain/snow being broken yesterday :w00t:  I'm going to let all the crazy skiers get their fill before I head up to check out the views :laughing:

Thank you!  I wish this cabin wasn't on private land (well documented STAY OFF private land :giggle:) as I'd love to get some different angles on it...can only take them from the road... I'd say this little cabin is one of the most photographed in the area :laughing: especially in the fall when we get our little bit of autumn color...

ahhhhh so if you wandered too close some redneck might emerge with a shotgun and/or axe!? :eyepopping:

Different angles might work well but the mountain as a backdrop means that this works as a composition from this further away distance! :nod:

If this is the same place outside Carson Pass on 88, around Hope Valley, then I've stopped here a few times to capture this old beauty. Nicely done.

It is indeed :D Finally "found" it last fall and promised myself to get back up with snow :love: There were sooooo many photographers there for the leaves but none this day...and it looks pretty good with the bare trees :laughing: (only people parked near here were there for cross country skiing or snow shoeing :heart:)

Glad you like it! I love getting positive responses from people who've actually been to the 'scenes' :blowkiss:

I little to much saturation on sky, but very beautiful. I like such sunny days and walk in fresh snow.

Know that feeling! We wondered how often the people who do own these two cabins (there's a much newer one behind this one...) the drive up to it wasn't plowed :laughing:

I love the idea of this cabin, and the blue tones in this picture are to die for. Ruth I so wish I could live in that spot you have no idea, it's just paradise. :D

Well when it's time to retire there are places for sale in this general area :D

Well I certainly wouldn't rule it out at all, as long as there is somewhere nearby to fish I would be very happy there. And I loved the blues. :D

there is the Carson River and we've seen people fly fishing in it, at least during the summer :D And Lake Tahoe is only about half an hour away...

That is so great you got this. We have been seeing almost something like this on the way back from breakfast for 15 years and its on a busy street and you have to park the car and walk to it and we always mean to do that and today coming back from breakfast we passed it and there were cars parked down there in a ditch and as we drove by we saw they tore it down and rebuilding a new one.......:crying: After all these years y would they rebuild something like that on land that is not even being used. I got a crappy drive by shot of it the other day and next Wednesday we will see what they have done..:crying: Serves me right!

Oh no!!! How sad ): Well, maybe they'll put up something interesting...

We've got a kind of similar situation - there is a ranch that we pass every time we come up the hill from Sacramento that has/had buffalo...we always meant to stop and ask to take some pictures - read in the paper recently that the rancher has retired and sold all his babies to another ranch several hours away :cry:

They are putting up a log house....and it looks very brand new with noooooooooooooooooooo character! This is just prove when you see a shot do it and if you dont have your camera go back and get it.
