View Full Version : Update on new Namakanta Stream lean-to/shelter

07-18-2016, 12:41
For those interested: on June 10-12 and then again on July 2-3 members of the MATC cut down and peeled the bark off over 50 trees. They are now lying on the ground where they fell and drying out around the current tent site there. Members will be back in Sept. and Oct. when the trees are considerably lighter to move them and finish the job of building the shelter. The existing privy will continue to serve the site. So those final few NB thru-hikers on the season will get to christen the new lean-to.

Special thanks to hard-working Lester Kenway, MATC president and overseer of the project!
