    Don, where in the town site were these two story structures located? I must have somehow missed these when I was in Ronald a few weeks ago. Are these near the old school building and gym?

    Yeah, I don't recall those buildings from when I was there. I did not spend a lot of time looking around as any town/site with a population does not fit for the GTW site.

    A couple years ago I printed off Don's pictures to try and do some before and after shots, and the only buildings I could find were the firehouse and store. None of the houses in the pictures I could find matches for around Ronald.

    It seems to me those great pictures of houses in Ronald - may actually be taken in Roslyn. The background terrain is, to my recollection, slightly wrong for Ronald. I should scour around for them some weekend. My buddy (now dealing with BS in Afghanistan) used to own a cool old home in Roslyn, so we spent some time there traipsing around. Just my two cents.

    I was just wondering that myself. There are a number of homes like that in Roslyn and as you say the incline isn't as steep in Ronald.

    My thoughts, too. The lack of two-story, larger houses in Ronald had me thinking that these bigger ones could be in the more appropriately sized Roslyn. I may have to go have a look-see at some point, too, and see if I can find some matches in Cicely.

    Entirely possible I mislabeled a couple of these. These go back almost 50 years so it's not gonna look the same now. I was contacted by the owner of the store in the photos and he verified that these were from Ronald. He still owns the old store and it's been in the family for many years.

    I have to visit Roslyn city (Kittitas County) in January next year, and I'll make sure to give this town a visit. I think a couple of hours stop would be enough to click 25-30 pics of the main buildings and surroundings of the town. I'll upload all the pics when I get back from there. BTW, can anyone recommend a good diner there?
