There's just something about an old cabin that makes me want to peek inside and explore it's history.That's why I love taking pictures of buildings from days gone by. They make gorgeous photos that just draw you in.
Perhaps it's the romantic in me, but I like to imagine what life would have been like for the folks who stayed there. Every old cabin has a story to tell. Some cabins would make perfect settings for novels set in the pioneer days. Others would make great hide-outs for bandits or stage coach robbers. Some look like old bunk houses for a few wranglers in a cow camp. That's the beauty of these antique treasures. They can be anything you want them to be.
The picture below was taken last week by my mother-in-law. It shows the west side of Glacier National Park. Could you imagine waking up every morning with that breath-taking view out your front door?
The pictures below were taken by my dad. He came across this old shack while scouting for elk in his hunting area.
It definitely has a mysterious feel to it. I'd love to know what it was used for years ago.
We may never know the real story about any of these old buildings, but it sure is fun to imagine their possibilities!
