    As globetruck mentioned, my first thought was to the blue-blazed Mau Har on Three Ridges that dumps you out at a shelter as well.

    I'm convinced the entire region is the epicenter of some weird vortex of evil or something. It's damn beautiful, but there has been a lot of tragedy for what is kind of a remote region.
