It would be difficult to find a better place to imagine mountain life than this. Picture yourself growing up here as one of Ephraim and Minerva Bales' nine children. Look around. This was your world. Imagine yourself and 10 others living in this small cabin.Ephraim Bales owned 72 acres here. He farmed 30; the rest remained wooded. This was like many farms along the Roaring Fork, where families scratched a hard living from a very rocky land.
