One comment on “Admiralty Cove Shelter – Admiralty Island, Juneau AK

  1. Even though it was always marked as “cabin” at the trailhead on Thayer Lake to Distin trail, it was in fact a “boat shelter”.
    Using common log cabin design, it was about 6’X11′ long and 5′ high.
    The roof was made of several logs laid side by side,
    Each one was notched to shed rain such as in clay-tile roof design. This boat shelter housed 1 square bow Jon boat.
