Some log buildings from Breckenridge Colo.

 Spent the week playing in the snow in Breckenridge Colo. last week and had a little time to explore log buildings in town.

This one is not log, but shows how colorful the town is.
 Rich in mining history, reminders are everywhere.
 Main St.
 There are many, many log structures in Breckenridge.
Must re-purposed into functional use.

One of the towns many museums.
The Edwin Carter Cabin.

 Although most of the buildings on Main St. are fixed up and in use, a couple are still waiting their turn.

Probable log underneath all that other stuff.
 A well maintained one.
 Closer look showing how the front is made more appealing.

 Same one. Not in use at this time.
 Close up.
 One side had even survived a fire from it's neighbor.

 Colorful front, simple, but beautiful side.

 Even the new visitors center incorporated log.
 Two side by side.
 In town were also several wonderful old churches.
 This very small, perhaps 8' x 8', cabin belonged at one time to a
hermit/preacher of a nearby church.

Many of the houses in town would look like this one if you took off the sidings.
