Hearth in the Middle of Nowhere, Bledsoe Loop. Ramsey Canyon, Arizona USA

paint can pinhole camera, paper negative, 28-second exposure, developed in Caffenol CM

This fireplace is the only remains of an old cabin along Bledsoe Loop, in Ramsey Canyon, Huachuca Mountains, southeastern Arizona. A pioneer physician named Nelson C. Bledsoe had owned this land in the canyon, which was handed over to the Nature Conservancy at the time of his death in the 1970s. Though this cabin exists on the current-day Bledsoe loop, I do not know if it was Bledsoe's cabin or not.

However, the lonely hearth stands among a cathedral of trees, between the steep walls of this beautiful canyon.
