Tiny House in a Landscape

This photo was taken in the autumn in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado. (Correction) This is outside of the town of Crystal – south of Marble and Redstone, about and hour and a half drive’s south of Glenwood Springs. Photograph by Bobby Douglas, thanks Rene for finding this beautiful photo.

I had the opportunity of spending a week jeeping and camping in the mountains behind Silverton, Ouray and Telluride as a teenager. We explored many mines and had the privilege of seeing this waterfall and mill/cabin when I was there.

If you ever get a chance to explore this part of the country be sure and do it.

    Beautiful photo – this is outside of the town of Crystal – south of Marble and Redstone, about and hour and a half drive’s south of Glenwood Springs…not in the San Juan mountains :)
    It’s one of the most photographed places in my great state of Colorado!

      Thanks for correcting me Erica, it reminded me of a place I had been above Telluride. I’ll make the correction above in a few minutes…Kent

    How interesting: this looks like the mountain mill scene Hermann Herzog painted over a century ago–the painting looks at it from a slightly different, lower angle to better depict the cascade. The Herzog painting is currently on display at Questroyal Gallery in New York (scroll down to about the middle of the following webpage) http://campaign.constantcontact.com/render?v=001dsGnuBrFqEE4mTAeA3V2DDXZmNa2CU2m9p1lq_jCnxILwp4C8Y-e3w5NoRilh-CLqALo-LCmbJG41BJK0v3SMjaRLqGuHRAjCxkZzXpITvJSjoK7s_1FLWgurzrWNpGFeSNKChSiZcg%3D.
