This year for Thanksgiving we were invited by our friends Greg & Penny to spend the weekend with them at Ripple Creek Cabins near the Trinity Alps.
Lori and I both had busy, stressful weeks, so having down time with friends was a great way to spend the holidays. Traveling there was a breeze, the Thanksgiving travel rush in that direction meant us and a couple of other cars.
When we arrived Thursday morning the turkey was still cooking so we took a walk around the area. We came across this lovely old barn with these wonderful hand forged hinges. The color of the aged wood reminded me of the bristlecone pines, so I believe the wood is some type of pine. Great texture and color that speaks to a time when things were built by hand.
