Tiny House in a Landscape

This week’s Tiny House in a landscape is of a remote mining cabin in central Colorado. I discovered it on one of my favorite websites Cabin Porn. I’ve had the privilege of exploring a fair amount of Colorado in my younger days and it is one of my favorite states in the Southwest. My great grandfather was a miner in the Cripple Creek area and my grandfather used to tell me the story of how he kept his dynamite safe and dry. He stored it under the bed in the cabin. Fortunately, they never had any accidents or I would not be here today.

This picture was photographed by Bob Winsett. I love the way the cabin fits into the scenery and blends into the mountain side.

Tiny House in a Landscape

This weeks Tiny House in a Landscape is a beautiful old stone house in the mountains. The picture is a wall paper that David found and set to me. You can get the high resolution file for a wallpaper here.

Unfortunately there is not any information about the photo so you will have to get creative as far as it’s origin. I am trying to decide if it is located in the southwest or over in Europe. If you know the history of this old stone house, please share it with us in the comment section.
