This one's for you Noreen!

This cabin was built in 1893 for the estate owner's coachman. It was the only structure to survive a fire in the 1920's and restored to its original condition in 1989. (source: Best Hikes Near San Francisco)

Adore this log cabin!

Notice the awesome window frames!

Interior photos taken through the windows.

Front door.

Love the window frames on the house.

View from our snack spot.

You can't tell, but it was raining while we snacked. 

Mt. Tamalpais in the distance.



Unnamed Trail, Allen Trail, Tucker Trail, Bill Williams Trail, Gertrude-Ord Trail, Phoenix-Ord Trail (Shaver Grade?). 

Poor trail signage in this park.


  1. That cabin! OMG! Could live there happily everafter. Lucky coachman. All you can do is wonder about the story behind the underpants... I really enjoyed this, as always. xo
