Old cabin ~ Windows and Doors~January 14, 2013



This old cabin can be found as you travel the road to the Palm Springs Indian canyons.  It only costs $9.00 to enter the canyons and there are two major ones there:  Andreas Canyon, where you can hike a 1 mile loop, and which has beautiful sycamore and cottonwood trees as well as palm trees.  It also has interesting geological rocks because it sits on a fault line.  The second canyon, at the end of the road, is Murray Canyon.  Murray Canyon has a palm tree oasis down in the bottom of it and it also has the ranger station/gift shop/refreshment stop (which is handy during the summer).  Morning is a great time to visit these canyons (they open at 8:00 a.m.).  We arrived in the afternoon, about 4:00.  I took these photos going up into the canyon and again back down.  Here is a link to more info about these amazing canyons:  http://indian-canyons.com/  Anyway, I was intrigued by this old cabin, its doors, and lack of windows!  Whimsical Windows and Delirious Doors for January 14, 2013.  To visit WWDD, please go to:   http://iwishiwereaphotographer.blogspot.com/

  1. I can see why you're intrigued, that's really a fascinating cabin! I'm not even sure I'd call it a cabin, it looks like the proverbial glass house. Guess someone threw some stones :)

  3. That is an odd looking cabin with all those big window frames! But then, the view through them would be magnificent and who would want to lose that with a solid wall?!

  4. That's what we call a "do-er upper" in our neck of the woods!

  5. My favorite is the middle photo where you can see the light and shadow looking right through the cabin into the distance. The structure is mostly windows which seems a little odd in such a hot climate.
