A few weekends ago, the Link School took a group of students up to the hut for similar service work. These students stained the stair railings, built a new deck out front, and stacked six cords of wood - hopefully enough to get us all through the winter! At the moment, the deck is just a platform. Before too long, though, it will have a railing and benches so that visitors to the hut can enjoy sitting outside whether or not there's snow on the ground and a fire in the fire pit.
By the way, the aspens have been beautiful this year. There is one lone aspen visible from the hut, but the road heading up is bursting with them. Here are a few photos from our weekend at the hut with the Link School.
