Around Sand Creek Park: “Abandoned Homestead”

Posted by: Lynne

This old homestead has always intrigued me. I don't know the history or story behind it, but in its day it must have been quite nice. Today I think only the pack rats live here. It's sad that whoever owns it has let it get into such a state of disrepair. You can see on the right hand side of the cabin the chimney for the outdoor fireplace/barbecue. This old place just begs to be photographed. I've tried several times, but I'm not sure I have gotten it right yet. Rick is really tired of stopping while I shoot photo after photo.  I would love to see inside.

They sure had a great view of Chimney Rock!

I like how the striations in the cliff face are repeated in the logs. At times it almost seems to blend in with its surroundings.

The out buildings are in even worse shape.

I hope it stands for many years to come.
