Today's RPPC of a cabin we'd probably all like to escape to

I think many of us would love the idea of escaping from many different (horrible) things that are going on right now. How about a log cabin in the middle of a clearing? I mean, there's probably no WiFi and a bear might wander into the kitchen at any point. But be honest: Does that sound worse than the current state of affairs?

Sadly, there is no way to know where this cabin is located, or even if it still exists. It's pictured on an AZO real photo postcard that dates to between 1904 and 1918, based on the stamp box on the reverse. There is no writing on the back. And yet, for a century, no one looked at this card, said, "What the heckfire is this?" and tossed it out. Now it's internet famous.
