This abandoned cabin was fairly close to our old property in southwest Colorado, but it was much harder to reach, being at 12,600 feet (3840 m) of elevation and with no road leading to it. I can only imagine that prospectors got to it on foot – like we did – or by using horse, mules, or donkeys. Either way, the climb to that cabin – which is very near Bonita Peak – is brutal, but the view once there is stupendous. It’s like being at the top of the world.
The detritus inside the cabin was interesting, and it also looked like various critters would seek shelter there, based upon all the different scat that we observed. If you click on the image below, you can see on Google maps exactly where this cabin can be found.
