Tin Hat Cabin on Sunny Coast Mountain Trail (BC, Canada)

"A series of bluffs up the East Tin Hat Ridge presented better and better views the higher we climbed. This is the last open bluff before Tin Hat summit, a somewhat flat and large, though uneven rock outcropping.   We decided to build the cabin here.…Below follows a chronology of the construction of the hut which, complete with upgraded trail, took some 30 days over a period of about three months."

Yeah, real cool, Lloyd. Yet another defacement of an otherwise neat ridgeline. Sean Leach. Cody, WY

I hate to be negative, but I kind of agree with Sean. They selfishly are now the only ones with a pristine view. everyone else has to look at their inelegance and immodesty. I was even more horrified to learn they have their mail helicoptered in. Ugh. I hope nature will reassert herself and blow it clean off the mountain while their wintering far below.

Not sure if you guys are joking or not? It's a public cabin, built by volunteers, on the Sunshine Coast Trail (180kms). Several have been built along the trail to offer shelter to hikers. It is a beautiful ridge line with 360deg views despite this modest cabin. Powell River is a coastal community of 20,000, about 100 miles north of Vancouver with two ferry crossings.
