The pictures were taken from a house that we were interested in the
Tabiona area. There was an old three room cabin that was build in
1935. Over the years someone had put up stucco siding and we had
grand visions of restoring it back to it's original log. I look
back after all the work and time we have put into the inside of
this place and realize how much time we would have spent on that
project. Soooo glad the septic was not up to code.
Beautiful golden sunset and a rainbow.
