Forever Wild – Day 5

It occured to me that although I have talked about Camp Huntington a bit I hadn’t actually shared any good pictures of it. So I’m going to rectify that by posting some now. You can see that the trick to making things look ‘rustic’ was to cover them in bark or in log cabin style. There’s actually a lot of European (mostly Swiss) influence in these building too. And this type of building influenced the way people still construct some buildings today. Go to any state or national park and you’ll find log-cabin-ish looking buildings and exposed timbers. That kind of architecture started right here.

Also here’s a video that I wasn’t originally going to post because the quality isn’t great, but there are some good parts so you can take it or leave it.
