"Rent in town was cheap, but I opted for the woods. Back in those days, living in the National Forest that surrounded Telluride was commonplace. My tent and tarped kitchen was a great setup, but was rustic compared to the makeshift cabins or "woodsies" that dotted the hillsides. Well hidden and incredibly cozy, these forest structures were crafted from downed trees, stone, and scrap building materials. Woodsy was both a name for the hardy hippies who chose this lifestyle, and for the homes they built."
