Crisp clean air, wild flowers, no need for air conditioning, the soothing sound of the river, a deck over-looking amazing mountain views.....yeah that about sums up our trip to the cabin. It was wonderful. My parents cabin is breath-taking and pictures don't do it justice at all. My mother grew up in the Chrystal River Valley and we have made numerous trips up to my grandparents and great-grandparents' homes over the years. We lived up there for a few years when I was in grade school and my parents have longed for a cabin in that valley since we moved to Texas. Well, their hard work and patience has paid off. They designed the cabin inside and out and our good friend who is a custom home builder here in Texas traveled with his crew up to the mountains all last fall and winter to make their dream cabin a reality.
My parents are still at the cabin working on finishing touches. Since these pictures were taken my dad has put in rock steps up to the front door and my mom has stained the insides of the windows and removed the protective films from the windows that you can see in the picture of Lyndi and I on the deck. It was so hard to come home, but we look forward to our next visit!
