Introducing leggings. You’ll never run out of inspiration.

Ephraim and his wife Minerva raised 9 kids here. This style of cabin is called a Dog-Trot due to the breezeway. At one time it had been boarded up and more beds placed there. This was a hard place full of rocks and a hard way to live. They owned 70 acres of hillside and planted 30 of it. Still the ground here is so rocky they would just get by. The Roaring Fork is close enough so you would here it 24/7.The smaller side was used for the kitchen and the bigger the living area. The doors are short to hold in heat better and so they didn’t have to add more logs to get the additional height

    Excellent photo Gary. Marvelous composition, color, and textures. What a hard life they had, but it was full of love with 9 kids.
