Vacation Cabin 103

For nearly fifteen years We have been going out to the Big Bend in August and, by the grace of God, spending the better part of a week in Cabin #103 up in the Chisos Basin. It's built of stone and adobe and has a long porch along the front that has the most wonderful view out through an opening in the Chisos Mountains called--- the Window! The cabin was built by the CCC around 70 years ago and served as the residence for the first superintendant of the park, Ross Maxwell. No TV, no telehone, no internet, no A/C...just peace, quiet, and time to move at whatever pace you choose! We love it and our daughter Hallie has joined us every year we've had her. What amazes me is that she goes in and out the screen door many times in a day but never lets the door slam! And we don't have screen doors on our house. Just almost spooky coming from a little kid!This is that door. See how wonderfully polished the stone is. I hope our daughter's kids get to add to that polish- just many,many years from now!
