I’ve updated the digital composite picture I made of Wynter’s home on Tiger Mountain. This one adds the garage and improves the driveway. On the left is the concrete area used as a basketball court.

So it’s fascinating to me to compare American locationsContinue reading “Doorways: Wynter Wild Houses Part 1: Locations”
