(Nov. 2015 Update: this post was started with only the pictures and title when I learned that my folks were planning to sell their cabin. I was saddened and thought of the cabin/Colorado like that relative that has been, at a distance, a part of your life. Well, the distance is still there with the cabin/Colorado still being a part of our lives).
p.s. Clayton, you are in the pics as well... you just hadn't arrived to the outside world yet.
