Snowshoe Trail Extraordinaire

I just returned, yesterday, from a snowshoe trip to Janet's Cabin. It is one of the Tenth Mountain Division huts that is located on the Colorado Trail.

To call it a "hut" is a bit of an understatement. It is rather luxurious accommodations for a cabin that is above 11,000 feet and is accessible only by trail.

It sleeps 20 people, and our group contributed 12 people to that 20. The cabin has a nice communal kitchen and is cozy warm, even in a February snowstorm.

I will soon be creating an Everytrail guide and then will provide you with a link to that. In the meantime, I will add a picture of the sauna... yes I said sauna.

Doesn't it look like a make-believe gingerbread house with powdered-sugar frosting on the roof?
