Re: First time trip in July 5 nights itinerary help pls

Re: data Minong

In 2002, my friend and I went from Little Todd to N. Desor when we were in fantastic shape. We noted how it was some of the toughest terrain we've ever hiked- even more than the southern portion of the AT & areas in Glacier. We planned on staying at N.

Re: Favorite Mountain House meals

Re: Submissions for PICTURE OF THE WEEK go here

Glad somebody else found my "secret" spot. Where's the cabin located? If you walk along the harbor's edge from the shelters towards Superior you will find it.
