I like that ... It conveys a sense of discovery and wilderness, a taste of the atmosphere in the place and the low viewpoint gives a nice leading line upwards towards the destination.

I really like the detail in this photo. It makes me feel as though I'm walking up that trail to the cabin. Great color on the greenery!

I'm surprised to find two of these so close to each other, there's usually miles between cabins for this sort of use.

In the summer up to ca 1950 one of the buildings was for cows and the other for people. Later the buildings are used only in the hunting season.

They look good... especially in that they are still up right, I know of many old hunting /trapping cabins around here, but most of them have fallen down.

Yes it is the same here in Norway. I think it is very important to take care of those old buildings for later generations. :-)

One was bought by rich people to use a hunting camp. So, that one was kept up... but you wonder for how long. People were shorter and the ceilings are low. Unless you're a hunter, it's not really lavish accommodation.
