The roof on this old cabin is really warped.  My Great-great grandfather traveled to this halfway house on snowshoes on he way to get some flour the first winter they stayed in the valley where we live.  It took him 2 days out and 2 days back carrying 50 lbs of flour.

Concentric Circles

The end cut on this block of wood in our wood shed shows interesting concentric circles in the grain.


This is the crank gear on my bike in our living room waiting for a rider….. ME!


The cookie jar that my wife grew up with, now resides in our home.  She has a glazed finish.


This is the marble counter top at work with the candy that keep visitors smiling.

  11. Can you imagine how artistic those circles would be with a clean slice from that log? Nice! I’m always drawn to the history behind some shots and especially impressed that your great-great grandfather had to snowshoe to and fro – enough to require a halfway house.
