Hiking Ruins

Sometimes when hiking I see ruins - Loud's Cabin is one of the best examples of this, and one I've posted on in the past. Here's another example from last weekend, hiking just west of Monument, where there's nothing left but a foundation.
These stairs probably led into the cabin at some point.
Somebody had more recently walled up this section, and it was filled with trash.
There was a much more interesting ruin later in the hike, but I'm saving that for a future post. And that's my entry for My World Tuesday.

  1. This is so interesting. It makes you wonder who lived there, when, how. I often stand in ruins around my village, both ancient and modern (1948), and wonder about the people who built the houses.

  3. Marvelous captures, Al, as always! Such fascinating ruins and they do make you wonder what their story is/was! Love the bricks and the color! Fascinating! Hope your week is off to a great start!

  5. the stones have a beautiful colour to them.

  8. Great post and photos. It is interesting to see foundations or ruins while you are out hiking. I'm sure they have a story to tell.

  16. I am always fascinated with ruins ... ancient or modern ... it doesn't matter. There's something so mysterious, so tragic there ... and you caught that feeling really well in these photos!

  19. I tried to find Loud's cabin today. No such luck I followed the seven bridges trail and kept going. I hit trail 622 and stayed left the whole time. I met a lone hermit father up where it became steep going up and gravel hill much like the photograph you had. He told me I had to keep climbing about ten feet to hit Jone's Park and that I was going the opposite way of Loud's cabin. Where he pointed up was a trail symbol of rocks stacked together on a cliff. Still going left was a trail I followed again marked 622
    So confused.
