Saturday, after the chores were done, Mike and I took a ride into the Kaibab National Forest to check out a little cabin we’d seen buried in the woods.
The place is barely visible from the North Rim Parkway (SR67) yet that obvious narrow gravel road called us to explore.
Deserted, yet an open door spurred us to peak inside and the place was clean and inviting.
This place has all the conveniences. Well almost. No running water, but there’s a cook stove and plenty of wood.
Plus the nearby privy…(oops, sorry Mike)
…with a great view.
Even with trees fallen on the roof, the barn/shed looked in good repair.
And the fences were stout. Made me wish I had horses to ride out onto the meadows and into the forest, then back for a safe night for all.
Some of the old dead/dying aspen carry heavy marks from past visitors…
…some more recent than others.
I could move right in. Except that I love my new 5th-wheel and it’s modern conveniences. But there’s a place there I could park for a while.
Although this is public land I can’t find anything online about the cabin. Yet I suspect it’s from the late 1800s to early 1900s ranching days. No signs except a number on the door. I hope to get more information from the District Ranger office in Fredonia this week.
