 I have a listing in Monument, in a neighborhood that sits next to Monument Lake.   Of course, I had to stop in and take photos, as it does have a beautiful setting right next to the mountains.           This was a week day, and only a couple of cars were there, but bet it is busy on weekends in the summer months! While I was taking photos - I turned around and saw this "building".    Wondered what it was in days past.   Could it have been an outhouse?     Not sure...  Fun seeing these type of structures, and wondering what there were in days past!
