My parents bought property in Southern Utah about 1970 with the intention to build a cabin for our family.They did,and it took over a decade to finish. But the work was worth it.
It was eventually sold in the early 90s to help with their retirement.
Here are my little brother and our Mom playing catch on the dirt road near where our cabin would be.
The car is our 1965 Plymouth Fury III with a massive 383 cubic inch gas guzzling V-8, a car which would haul the trailer we stayed in up there. I drove that car as a senior in high school;it was a thrill to drive up to my friends homes with that burbling exhaust promising teenage adventure.
Here we see Bill Bliss and his family camping in what I've deduced is probably Oregon in the 1950s as the plate on the right is an Oregon plate and the surrounding terrain in other photos suggest a north coast vacation. Scanned from the Anscochrome slide. View full size
Here again we see our Yosemite travelers Bill and Gloria. View full size.
Here we see our two companions yet again, albeit one of them with an odd choice of footwear (or lack thereof). tterrace says the car is a 1954 Ford. View full size
