I don't know how the mattress ended up like this, of if anyone used it in this condition, but this was how I found it.

SONY SLT-A77V 1/30 second F/4.5 ISO 200 27 mm (35mm equiv.)

may be it was transported here by some vagrants or tramps who lit some fire here on a cold night and left the place later :)

This mattress could look very attractive to a homeless person.

@Michael Skorulski: yes, probably more comfortable that the hard floor or the rocky ground

@Ronnie 2¢: Air BnB listing probably reads:
Warm fireside sleeping sleeping with ample closet space and rustic hardwood flooring.

Well, I don't think this is a love nest...for humans at least. Mice? Probably.

A fine picture of the mattress which used to be. We can see why it was left. Nice shot.
