Built by a gold prospector sometime before 1930, the cabin is one of three located on 40 acres 1-½ miles back inside the Pike National Forest. Quiet and secluded, surrounded by wildlife, the cabin was renovated in 1996 and recently updated.
At 8200 feet a few miles north of Woodland Park, summers are warm in the daytime and cool at night. Far from any city lights, the view of the stars at night is amazing. Wildflowers are abundant in the surrounding forest. The Rocky Mountain Bird Observatory counted 25 species of birds on site in one morning in June 2014. Hummingbirds are regular visitors along with chipmunks, rabbits, the resident red fox, the occasional deer and elk in the spring and a black bear in late summer and fall. The cabin's water source is pumped from a stone well fed by a pure mountain spring just above the cabin. The old prospector also operated a still! Electricity is provided by the IREA. Remarkably the cabin roof and ceilings are unique; crafted from (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) Colorado license plates!
The old road into the property crosses Trout Creek on an old bridge that is soon to be replaced. It is safe; just proceed cautiously. Four wheel drive is recommended but not necessary during dry weather. There are several trails accessible from the cabin-find the map on the wall inside the dining room!

Architect, urbanist, photographer and author. I like to travel alone. I love maps. I love to walk. I like trains. I love to observe people in urban places. I like to get out early to photograph Architecture before the crowds. I like both the historic monuments and especially the contemporary interventions. I will visit all the contemporary art museums I can find. I don't go out much at night-too tired from my excursions. i wear hearing aids so noise does not bother me-I can turn them off.
I visited Shanghai and Beijing in 2013. In 2012 I toured a number of cities of northern europe and Scandinavia.
I have led student tours and study abroad programs in Paris.
I need coffee.
The joy of living is in learning.
