What is a blogger to do when there is no Weekly Photo Challenge scheduled this week? Why, post for Thursday Doors, of course!
Back in July (seems so long ago now), we stayed with friends in their cabin near the west shore of Lake Tahoe. It was another endlessly hot weekend in the Sacramento Valley, so a 2-hour drive to the Sierra Nevadas seemed like the best place to go.
After playing on the lake with the dogs and enjoying the mountain air, I took a walk with one of my dogs around the neighborhood and discovered LOTS of wonderful cabin doors!
The above photo shows the creativity and color this person added to his cabin door. Even though the sign says “Xx’s Roost” I doubt the roosters hang out there much since there are very active bears that lurk around in the forest day and night. Look closely on the door and you can see the electric gizmo attached to keep the bears away while the residents are gone.
Our friend’s cabin had an electric doorstep as a bear deterrent, and even knowing it was turned off during the day, you can bet I cautiously stepped over it each time!
Love the red door of this cute A-Frame and how the trees are reflected in the windows. Must be a stunning view from the inside.
Some lucky child is going to have some fun as she parks her bike in front of their cabin garage door.
A nice walk is all anyone needs to enjoy the beautiful surroundings in these unique Lake Tahoe neighborhoods.
