Old Chico - Miner's log cabin - Emigrant Gulch

Posted by Joyce (Montana, United States) on 19 August 2017 in Lifestyle & Culture.

I love this shot of a miner's home just sitting in my archives. Tiny, so it would hold the heat of it's fire place. Mining is hard work and they were using Native land which earned violent reaction, not so long ago. Things have not changed really, greed eclipses heart.

So present with the Now sun catching it's corner. I visit and feel the presence of our pioneer ancestors. Bravely defying death for freedom in the new world. We are not done yet. Far from it, and far from lessons that must be learned.

Thank you for your visit and comments. I so enjoy hearing from you and seeing the world through your lens.

Nice shot and commentary. Love may make the world go round, but greed throws it off kilter.
