Old bars, buildings and such have become very interesting to me thanks to my husband Jeff. I was always more interested in the scenery, the trees, waterfalls etc ( I still am ) but he taught me to look at and wonder about old structures. What was the story?, what happened here?, what was life like?. I have come to appreciate the beauty of these old structures and the artistic elements they exhibit as they move away from usefulness and closer to being reclaimed by the earth.
This shot was taken at an Holzworth Historic District in The Rocky Mountain National Park. It was the outhouse used at the site where John Holzworth Sr settled with his family in the early 1900’s. Walking around the site made you appreciate the nature and fortitude of those settlers.
