It's a fixer-upper for sure.
Notice the clock over the door - where it is always 12:42.
If you plan to cook, bring your own pan.
More wall decor.
This is the second cabin visited - known as "Riggs Cabin". Frank and Sarah Riggs were involved in mining in this region starting in the early 1880's, and had claims filed in several places. In the 1910 census, they listed their residence as "Silurian Camp". Not sure if this cabin has any relationship to that.

Interior of Riggs cabin. Not as cared for as Bob and Ward's cabin (see separate gallery), but it does show occasional use, according to the log book on the table.
Bedroom at Riggs cabin.
Some very nice stonework was done at Riggs cabin, including retaining walls and this nice walkway, which leads out to a small platform.
The third and last cabin we visited in the area. It is called "Jake's Cabin", for Jake Samland, who was instrumental in restoring and maintaining it.
Jake's cabin seems well cared for.
Back deck at Jake's cabin.
Interior at Jake's. It is wired for connection to a generator (bring your own) and very cozy. Like others of these remote cabin's, it appears to have been adopted by many, and is available on a "fist-come-first-served" basis. Note the welcome on the door.
Photos of work being done on Jake's cabin, and that is Jake with the beard on the right.
A nice sketch of the cabin dated 3-25-03.
The outhouse at Jake's. Bring some reading material and take your time.
Jason, myself and Brock say goodbye to Jake's until another day.
