Picture Window

This is an abandoned homestead in the Colorado Rockies. It is near a deserted mine.

Despite that this was the middle of summer, the weather was quite cool; there was still snow in the mine site itself. I can only imagine what life would have been like for these homesteaders, enduring the brutal and isolating alpine winters.

I hope that this “picture,” as viewed through their window, mitigated their suffering a little.
