I’ve often noticed these ramshackle wooden shacks just off Route 301 between the Taconic State Parkway and Carmel, NY. I’ve also often thought that we should stop and take some pictures, but until now I haven’t done so.

There are three of them and I don’t know what they are/were or why they’re there. So far haven’t been able to find any additional information.

While taking a picture of the first shack above I decided that I might get a better shot if I was the other side of a stone wall. Unfortunately the only way to get to the other side was to climb over the wall. As I was doing so one of the stones turned under my foot. Luckily it didn’t fall on any part of my anatomy as it was a rather large stone. It did, however, twist my toe, which made walking painful for about a week and rather curtailed my photographic activities.

The view from the other side with the offending wall in the foreground. Unfortunately the picture is not too sharp. I was using an old Minolta manual focus lens and since I was in a fair bit of pain at the time I guess I wasn’t concentrating enough on getting the focus right.
