    You've probably thought of this, but have you tried white noise? Dogs are the worst!

    I have not read every reply, but I have done this, in '18', I have stayed at each hut more than once. I would not skip Lakes, the views change by the moment. The dining is a zoo, but really a special experience. I say that with this thought.....If you came to Mtn. Washington looking for any solitude, don't waste the gas! Now as far as the distance goes, 12 miles light pack, beautiful day.......no sweat. Breakfast is at 7am, so I guess you could wolf it down by 0715................ those 7 miles to Washington are no joke, in good weather. Just my 2cents but if I had to skip one of those 3 Huts.....I would camp at Nauman tentsite.

    Lake of the Clouds equals "Lake of the Crowds" The reality is the huts are booked steady all summer although there are usually openings early in the season during the week but the AMC tries to fill the slots up with groups. The huts are definitely not set for up social distancing.

    white noise bothers me as well. I have an app that has pink and brown noise as well. I found the pink noise works for me.

    Not quite. The bunks all have a (several inches thick) long twin mattress, two thick wool blankets, and a pillow. Even if you bring nothing else, you will still be warm and reasonably comfortable (those blankets are itchy A.F.)

    However, the mats, blankets, and pillows are only cleaned once a season.

    So if you are staying in the huts, I strongly recommend bringing a sleeping bag or quilt, and bring your own long twin fitted sheet and your own pillowcase. I had great success with a fitted sheet + pillowcase and a 50F Enlightened Equipment quilt.

    Also, while the bunk rooms are not heated, I guarantee they are significantly warmer than sleeping outside, by a large margin. There are a lot of bodies generating heat.

    Or bring a sleeping bag liner, one of the heavier duty ones.

    I was speaking from personal experience. My experiences have been hit and miss on the blankets in the huts. If the huts do open this season, I doubt they would be offering blankets/pillows. There is no way to launder them between guests.

    I agree the huts are warmer than sleeping outdoors. However, I think it will be a bit before they will be back to operating at full capacity.
