Outstanding!

Saw the first snow of the year when we visited here in October. Stayed two nights. The outhouse at this lookout is the nicest I've seen! There is precut firewood but otherwise sparse supplies. Used the wood stove to cook with our cast iron pan. It got really windy and stormy but was cool to wake up to snow. Temps were in the 20's at night…woke up cold to an empty wood stove!
