I’d like to nominate my cabin for the cutest cabin, the most adorable, in the world, or at least in Meeker Park. I’m not sure where I enter my nomination, but I know I would win, if I could find the right contest.
Just look at it, tucked among the golden aspen trees, which happened to be glorious last week, with that blue door and the green deck. It could be an ilustration from a fairy tale, where the elves emerge, half sleep, stretching in the light of the day. Ideally, smoke should be uncurling from the chimney (that will come soon).
Sure, there are grander cabins around Meeker Park, some more architecturally interesting, with bigger stone fireplaces and better views of Mount Meeker. Some have screen porches screened by aspen trees and overlooking the creek, while others are almost hidden in aspen forests. I’d probably get some competition from the cabin just down the road, with its neat stack of logs against one wall and its rustic wooden rocking chair on the front porch and green shutters. It might be even be a little smaller than mine.
And then if you add in the cute chipmunks, adorable ground squirrels, soft furry rabbits and perky chickarees around my cabin, it’s a knockout, no question about it.
Anybody want to argue?
