I am linking today to Rubbish Tuesday. This picture is of a miners cabin, which has been reduced to rubbish by Mother Nature. It is located high in the San Juan Mountain Range of Southwestern Colorado. Once the bustling town site of Carson, built near an active silver mine in the late 1800's; the Bonanza King. Now a ghost town, it is a favorite four wheel drive destination from the little town where we spend our summers. To reach Carson, you take the scenic Alpine Loop south from Lake City, Colorado and turn left at Wager Gulch, where you begin a very very rough steep climb, and travel approximately four miles.
Carson Town site is privately owned, and thankfully many of the old structures have now been given new roofs, which will keep them from collapsing. The owners have agreed to let people enjoy the place ( we always pack a picnic) ; just ask that you respect the property, (no vandalism), and leave it as you found it.

If you look closely at the second photo... you can see the collapsed cabin. It is to the right of the tree. It's outhouse is still standing...further to the right..
