1. Parsons Memorial Lodge - Architecture in the Park. The Lodge is a simple, humble, yet massive structure. The building is symmetrical and rectangular in plan. The masterfully executed rubble stone masonry is laid in a reinforced concrete core. The pink feldspar and grey granite stones for the building were gathered onsite. (Submitted on May 28, 2013, by Barry Swackhamer of San Jose, California.) 

2. Soda Springs Cabin - Wikipedia. The ruins of the cabin are located directly over the gaseous spring, and are thought to have functioned as a springhouse rather than as a dwelling, preventing livestock from fouling the spring.
