Stone Cabin

Out on an evening walk recently, I captured this image of a stone cabin. It looks like it is stacked stone construction and the chimney certainly means that there must be a fireplace of some sort. This part of Dove Mountain was ranched for a number of years before development took over the landscape.

The stone cabin might have been early living quarters for a settler, or a chosen picnic spot, or maybe even a summer house. Whatever its vintage and use, it is an enticing landmark to behold as evening light casts golden shadows across the bajada in the Tortolita Mountains.
