Hidden Cabin


In the book I'm working on right now. The main character hides out in a hidden cabin in the mountains. I got the idea from a place in the Wasatch Mountains. My ever-so-great-grandfather Green discovered a basin long ago, which was named Green's Basin after him. It has a beautiful meadow with a kaleidoscope of sweet smelling mountain flowers. In the pines on the far side of the meadow is a hidden dug-out cabin. It's really hard to tell it's there except at a certain angle. Here are some pictures.

How cool is that? I'm glad to hear you're using it as a locale in your writing!

Wow! That's amazing.

I looked at the first pictures and wondered, "Was there supposed to be a cabin in this picture? I didn't see it ..."

Then I see the front and it's like "Wow."

It will be interesting how you describe such a cabin in your book--it could be tricky!

Neat. My brother and I had a secret hiding place where we would go to read when we were little. We called it Chuck-a-luck, after a hide out in an old cowboy movie. I think everybody needs a great hiding place.

Wow! I've got chills just from that! I bet you can feel time moving around you and the characters come to life! I'm so happy that you have something 'living' to inspire your works! <3

Cool!!! I enjoyed the novel, and it's nice to see what inspired that cabin. Great photos.
