We cycled past this a few years ago when touring in Mid-Wales.
It's close to abandoned slate quarries and was probably used as a workman's hut (though he must have been warm as toast inside, with two fireplaces :whistling: ).

I'll look for it.

The 1920's era high school in the next town east from us was a castle like that. the auditorium was humongous. Full fly system over the stage, I think a functioning orchestra pit elevator, and a bleeping pipe organ. They were not just schools, they were centers of civic pride. Fortunately that structure was saved; it became luxury condos. I don't know what they did with the auditorium though.

Now THAT sounds like a real monster! Glad it was saved.

A local rancher told me this cabin was referred to as the "Trapper Hays" cabin and he had no other history tidbits. Evidently, Trapper Hays had been long gone and it had been collecting refuse for many years. This cabin is located along the Strawberry River and the first photo shows the Strawberry Pinnacles on the way to the cabin. It is situated in a small grove of trees adjacent to a hay field, very peaceful,

Looks like a fixer upper! Solid in parts, only thorough cleaning needed and of course some windows and doors.
(I actually mean it, the log part of the cabin looks solid!)

After hearing that a site I visited in 2014 has been razed, I went back through the unused portion of the set I took there and gleaned some additional shots. Scranton Lace. First couple are iPhone 5 Hipstamatic, rest are GX1/p20 except for the 4th which is a p14-42 II. I also took some shots with my Rokfish that are posted in the Samyang 7.5mm f/3.5 showcase.
