I have hiked behind my house for years and finally stumbled upon this old mining camp.

"KONSUM"
Konsum was cooperative retail chain which maintained bigger and smaller supermarkets in former east Germany DDR as well as an actually mobile supply of food and general goods. This Konsum sits abandoned in a small village. Doors and curtains most likely unchanged since it has been given up. I guess back in the day local residents could get basic stuff like bread, butter, milk and other daily goods right in their village, today they'll need to drive to the nearest town if they forgot buying their butter.
I like small details as the damaged rain pipe, which obviously never has been fixed, the plastering which is falling apart, the old remains of the doormat below the stairs or the mailbox - which actually still seems to be serviced. I have to shoot it again in the early morning hours, lighting was rather harsh when I was there.

I have been visiting this abandoned cabin for over 10-years. I believe it was last lived in sometime during the 1970's. This year during the crazed Covid camping crisis, someone decided to break or shoot most of the windows out of it. Now the weather can get in and it will deteriorate faster.

What a shame. It looks like it was once a great cabin. Little work and it could still be.

This old structure is out in the Carrizo Plains National Monument in California. It stands amid miles of solar panels that are encroaching on it as seen through the window crop below.

Is there a story on why this failed? It seems like very valuable property, so why let it languish.
Just finished watching New Orleans take Tampa Bay apart 38-3!

It is my understanding that this complex is now the property of the National Park Service...who may have plans for it but this is just my guess. Also think this was part of the Elk Flats Ranch that was not acquired by the NPS when the Grand Teton N.P. was first being established and was acquired subsequently, maybe piece-meal. Have heard that there are ~75 cabins, ranches etc, within the GTNP Boundary, that to date have not come available for purchase or the NPS has not offered to buy them out, as yet...NPS money is always in short supply. Some, like these, appear abandoned as family's died off, lost interest or left the area for whatever reason. Me, I just enjoy photographing them when I can:th_salute:
