When working for DOC in 1996 and finishing the track up to the burn we had the old Mountain House looking great; lino on the table and floor, new mattresses, stereo set up in the corner, etc, etc. Unfortunately all just temporary and cosmetic improvements but made our 10 day stays a lot more comfortable.

  • pmcke pmcke Yes, I remember staying there.We had walked up Friday night so it was dark when we arrived. I was just nodding off to sleep when the silhoette something very large went across the window sill. Needless to say we were all awake like a shot, all food packed into packs and hung on a rope from the roof.
