Description

Image is a winter scene of a log cabin in foreground with snow on the ground and roof. A rail frame fence is adjacent with mixed birch and spruce forest behind. Mountains form the near backdrop with a conical peak prominent, variously identified over the years as "The Matterhorn", Beyers Peak, and Matanuska Peak. Other photos in the collection indicate the fenced area was probably fox pens. An associated cache was located in front of the cabin closer to the Matanuska River, The road that developed between Palmer and the Bodenburg Butte area passed between the cabin and cache. The cabin is believed to have belonged to Eugene Marsh.
