Yes, it is a real log structure. I don't think it was ever registered. If my cousins don't want it, I hope they will donate it to the National Parks Service.

Sanibel Island:




Rockfish Valley, Virginia:




My aunt's driveway, near Crozet, Virginia:

Thanks, Carel1230 and Idun--it was taken from one of the overlooks on the Blue Ridge Parkway. I have another one that was a close-up from the same spot, but I can't find it right now. The log cabin in the previous picture is somewhere near the base of the first mountain ridge at the center left--I was born in a small town near there.

That Valley pic reminds me of some of the views we saw of the Scottish Highlands in the fall. Beautiful country.

I do hope to go to Scotland and Ireland "someday." That's where our ancestors originated--very heavy settling of Scots-Irish in the Rockfish Valley, Virginia. It is said that the terrain and weather reminded them of home!

I'm not surprised! We've traced ancestry back to Scotland then London then to up state NY. I do hope you get to visit Ireland and Scotland, it's beautiful country!

Wow so many beautiful photos here. Diemen your Yosemite photos are gorgeous, it's one of my favorite places on Earth.

Here are photos from my trip to Joshua Tree National Park last month. Sorry there are alot of the joshua trees, I've been a bit obsessed with them since childhood (no relation to u2) so I enjoyed photographing them. The joshua tree forests are so amazing, they almost have a prehistoric feeling being there.

If you do go, go during the cooler seasons so you can walk around and enjoy them without too much of the desert heat. We found January was perfect, but it stays nice there til at least April. May thru Sep. can get pretty hot.

I know! I much prefer the cooler weather, especially when Spring is in the air.
