Rustic cabin amongst the pine trees
This old log cabin is set on a ridge in the Ponderosa pines.
It has withstood a lot of harsh winters. Ponderosa pines lose many of their lower branches unless they have extra room to grow. The bark turns reddish as the tree matures. I live in the country with several acres of Ponderosa pines. Thinning the smaller trees and the not so healthy looking trees for fire wood provides a better growing environment. The cabin is made up but the scene is typical of my property.
