Lake Guerin West Shelter Cabin – Admiralty Island AK

Description

“The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) built the Lake Guerin West Shelter Cabin as part of the Admiralty Island canoe route. It is a three-sided Adirondack style shelter. It has a peeled log superstructure and shake walls and roof. The structure is well-maintained, and it looks the same as it did when built. The sill logs on one short side wall and the back wall have been recently replaced; but the sill log on the other side wall appears to be original. […] Several of the vertical posts have been replaced, and all the angle braces appear to have been replaced. The natural setting is the same as it was during the 1930s, with the view from the shelter looking on the inlet channel draining Distin Lake.”
