    "This is a luxury shelter by any standards! Down a nice long path off the trail you'll find this well-built and well-accessorized shelter. Running water from a pipe nearby, a "sunken livingroom" with a rock wall, a privvy, etc. all add up to a nice sleeping experience. Well worth a detour or a few extra miles!"
