Porch with a View, Cashbaugh Ranch – Mono County, CA

This Photo was taken this Fall, almost a year after the one in my November photo Blog. I needed to make a quick trip to the Eastern Sierra, and I had heard that there had been a fire on the Owens River Road, which this building is on, and that a couple of out-buildings had been destroyed in the fire, but the news reports weren’t very specific about WHERE on the road the fire was. On arriving there, I found that the fire had been much further north, and the building that I was so fond of was still standing.

This trip, the clouds and the light on the Sierras attracted me, and motivated me to capture an over all view of the building and its surroundings.

Cashbaugh Ranch is a working ranch on the Owens River (dirt) Road, where Hot Creek crosses the road. There is a small side dirt road that goes down to a horse corral and two old ranch buildings, a trailer and a stable building. There are no signs posted against trespassing.

The building pictured looks to have been built in the late 1800′s, or the first half of the 20th century, but I haven’t been able to find any information about the building. It appears to have been set up for public viewing/photography, with the old couch left in front, and the Outdoor Bathtub, which I also photographed that day.
