Stone Homesteaders Cabin

Recently we were at Boyce Thompson Arboretum near Superior, Arizona
and came across this homesteaders cabin from the turn of the century.

The park has recently been doing some work on it.

The cabin is tucked under an overhang
 in the cliff above that makes it feel like a cave
 when you look in from the door.

In contrast, the front rooms that were built of stone 
are white washed making them very bright.

To the right you can see part of the fireplace 
that has been blocked up.

It is not immune to structural cracking.
