Wood shingles are so rustic. How do they last so long, I wonder.

Steinziegel sieht man häufig im Gebirge, Holz dagegen sehr selten. Hübscher kleiner Brocken im Hintergrund!

I guess it is not easy to find who can fix a roof like this one!

What a view they have!

I like the contrast in materials - the roof, the stone chimney, the rusty metal, the green grass and that rocky mountain! Very nice.

Sharon and Lowell wrote what I was going to write. It is a remarkable place, and the various textures are amazing.

Gosh Karl, the shingle roof is pretty special but the backdrop is spectacular :)

I was so taken with the roof I forgot to look closely at that mountain. Quite spectacular!
