Rainy Day Shelter

On Saturday, October 23, a friend and I (using a cane) hiked in to the Rainy Day Shelter.  The day turned out to be beautiful, warm and sunny.  

The view from the shelter is also very nice.  

I didn't get pictures of the the outhouse and barbecue and picnic table that are situated below the shelter on a flat spot.  There are also nails in the trees by the picnic table for hanging a tarp for shelter from the rain or stormy weather.  

It is a wonderful spot to spend a few days hiking around and using the shelter as the base camp.

Troubridge Hut

Mount Troubridge Hut

Mount Troubridge Hut is located in an old growth wilderness setting just below the 1300 metre summit to Jocelyn Pond. 

Logan Homes created the log shell that was then reassembled on the foundation built by PRPAWS.  Over a period of 7 three-day expeditions PAWS construction teams built the rest of the hut. 

The Hut was built with the financial help of  ICET and BCTC.

The hut is ready for use now.  Here is the front porch for early morning coffee in the sunshine, or a soiree after a hike through the old growth along vistas that wow!
It is a shared use facility and the loft will sleep a half dozen comfortably and more in a pinch.
