Mayhew Lodge Ruins overgrown

By EricaC  
Sorry to delete other photo, but I think I like this one better.

This was in Sedona, AZ, USA. This is the remains of the historic Mayhew Lodge.

This is excerpt I took from a website explaining a little of the history: "As early as 1895, Lou Thomas turned Bear Howard's cabin into a two-story hunting fishing lodge. It was there that Zane Grey was inspired to write his book Call of the Canyon, which he turned into Sedona's first movie. In 1925, the property was sold to Carl Mayhew who operated it as Mayhew's Lodge. It became a favorite destination for prominent movie stars, politicians, and writers. Guests included Lord Halifax, President Herbert Hoover, Clark Gable, Susan Hayward, Cesar Romero, Jimmy Stewart, Walt Disney, and Maureen O'Hara. The U.S. Forest Service acquired the property and made plans to renovate the structure, but tragically the lodge burned to the ground in 1980."

This is all part of a beautiful hiking trail in Sedona
