On Sunday I decided to take a day hike up to the Marshal South Cabin. It was a beautiful day in Blair Valley, and a good day for a climb up Ghost Mountain.





I guess this is what happens to Century Plants whose time has come and gone.



Beaver tail amoung the rocks.



It is amazing the difference a few miles can make in plants.



I wouldn't want to fall into this.



After one false summit, I finally reached the cabin.











I know everybody comments on how ingenious his water catchment and containment system was, but I was just amazed that he carried those 55 gallon drums and that cement up that mountain.













And I have to admit, I didn't realize what this was at first.



But you have to admit that they had a great view from up there.



But I can imagine the after 16 years, Tanya had enough going up and down the mountain.

Awesome pics, it makes you a bit sad to see how deteriorated everything is. He worked so hard and nature has reclaimed it back.

I always enjoy going up there, if you don't have the Marshal South book I would recommend buying it. It is full of great info about the South family. Were you able to get over to the east end and see the kiln?

I was very careful to to be sure I saw everything, but I don't think I saw the kiln.
