    I'm not sure whose bright idea it was to build a shack out in the middle of the Nisqually delta. The river is slowly taking this cabin as its own.

    in Unoccupied Buildings, Shacks, and Cabins

    Built and enjoyed by Bob Johston who willed the cabin to a boy scout troop in 1977. The cabin was regrettably destroyed by fire. A nearby outhouse speaks to the durability of log cabin construction.
