Yeah I guess the roof could definitely use some attention, but other than that it didn’t seem to be in too bad a shape when I was there last fall. Definitely seen other lean-tos in much worse shape...

One leanto at a time....
The fireplace looks like it is in need of a lot of help. Probably a bad roof too. The deacon seat and first log ends are pretty rough looking, promoting a lot of future rot.

Adds character.
I get it though, best to get ‘er done now while doing the West Canada’s before it becomes a safety issue.

I agree Justin, when I was there last summer it wasn't too bad. There was a torrential downpour at the time and as I recall, only one small drip from the roof. Far worse was West Lake 1, but I think that was already taken care of. West Lake 2 was in excellent shape. It is probably a good idea to just address the needs of all of the leantos in the area and with the exception of an unforeseen event, be done with them (for awhile).

My understanding is that is the plan.
