Stars, Kundig and Little Old West
Last week, I had a privilege to visit Mazama, WA with my best friend from Jr. High school. Summer is a gorgeous season here in Seattle so it was the best timing for her to make a visit. It has been over 6 years since she was here last time.
Winthrop is a small town about a 3-hour drive east from Seattle. The weather was nothing but beautiful for this road trip. Why Mazama? Because I have been wanting to visit The Rolling Huts cabins. These huts (6 of them – essentially steel-clad boxes on stilts) were designed by a renowned Seattle architect, Tom Kundig (http://www.olsonkundigarchitects.com), and meant to be guest rooms for Delta Shelter (http://www.olsonkundigarchitects.com/Projects/38/Delta-Shelter#) but are now used as cabins for rent. This could not have been a better place to take my best friend who is an architect in Japan.
You can read more about the huts at the web site http://www.rollinghuts.com but here are some pictures we took while enjoying the surrounding nature and starry nights around the beautifully designed cabin and neighboring town, Winthrop, which offers a little rustic old west charm to its visitors.
Oh, and if you like coffee, make sure to visit Winthrop’s local coffee roaster, Lariat Coffee (http://www.lariatcoffee.com)!
