Two years ago there was a very nice chalet on this empty lot. The people who owned it sold it to a woman who already has another house in Wawona, on the other side of the creek, as well as having homes scattered across the nation. She had the place torn down; we suspect she intends to build a Taj Mahal on the site, but the economy being what it is, well, the lot just sits empty. Better views for us.
