Pratt Cabin--McKittrick Canyon Trail

We recently discovered what is now one of our favorite "dream houses" in the region--Pratt Cabin on the McKittrick Canyon Trail in Guadalupe Mountains National Park.  You can read more about it here.  Wallace E. Pratt and his family built the cabin in 1931-2, providing them a place to escape the summer heat of Houston, their home.  Pratt, a petroleum geologist and conservationist donated their land to the National Park Service enabling public access to McKittrick Canyon.  A slideshow of more photos of the cabin is here.
