Several years ago I came across this structure (in the early stages of development) during one of my exploratory trips thru the wilder sections of the Belknap Range. This is a little more elegant-looking than a previous one posted, with a cedar shake exterior and real glass (plexiglas?) for windows, but it is only about the size of an AMC backwoods hiker's lean-to, thus it's more cramped than the earlier one. However, it is special in that it's built on poles up off the ground, backed up against a vertical cliff face. It has a small stove (note chimney on roof) and seems to be used in all seasons by the several young men who built it. Much of the construction is of trunks of small trees lashed together, but a lot of the material had to be brought in by hand (or backpack), for quite a distance from the nearest road.

Interesting picture. Any idea on when it was built or last used ?

To Mee-n-Mac: It's about 5 yrs old, and there were signs of recent activity at the site when I took the photo a few weeks ago.
