This last thursday I talked with the owner and caretaker at Rainbow Springs Campground. They told me that next spring, the owners of the Walasi-Yi outfitters will be opening a satellite store at the campground to help hikers with gear. Just wanted to pass this news on.

Yurt..a circular domed tent of skins or felt stretched over a collapsible framework and used by the Kirghiz and other mongol nomads of seberia also a structure that resembles a yurt in size and design..

the folks at rainbow springs have a new Yurt...which will be replacing the old "stalog" of bill bryson fame :clap ....I hiked thru there end of sept and the yurt was up and the heat being put in...I think this new yurt..(well it's not made fo skins or felt but it looks like a yurt) will be a lot nicer than the old bunk house...

they also discussed the possiblity of installing a sauna in the old bunkhouse...

and they now accept mail drop packages...Nice folks too....
