Curtis Cabin

In February of 2014, I visited the fairly remote Frank Curtis Cabin. I found Boxcar and Ed were already there and busy cleaning and restoring the cabin to a habitable condition. Follow Backcountry Cabin Etiquette when visiting.

The narrow, one man cabin was built by Frank Curtis in 1958 and he used it for nearly 30 years. Up on the hill behind the cabin is a small mine, of which not much remains, except an unstable 40 ft inclined shaft. I’m guessing not much ever came of the mine, but Frank chose a beautiful spot to have his cabin. It makes a great place to visit today.
