This is so cool, I've looked through this five times now.

Where is the "Route 30" lean-to?

Nice work, I built one in my yard this year. At least my own version of one.

IIRC it is in/near Paul Smiths.

It's on Route 30, just north of the intersection between that road and Route 86 in Paul Smiths.

Here's a shot in the construction stages. The firepit is not too close, but I'm actually going to turn it around and rebuild the inside of it come spring. Music will be emulating from this thing come summer.

Very cool. Where did you source the logs?

Be Careful.

On more than one occasion, my dogs and I have witnessed people attempting to emulate from structures such as this.


Each instance resulted in a bee-hive hair-do, and a lost eyeball.

They are hemlock from my property, which I had logged last summer and sent these logs to my buddy who has a sawmill. He cut them flat on three sides (D-logs). Other than the floor base, the rest of the lumber is hemlock also. Heavy stuff to work with. It's not perfect, as I'm no contractor, but we like it.

Sorry DSettahr, didn't mean to get away from your original post. You should write a book about ADK lean-tos.

This is one reason I always announce my approach to a lean-to. I recall an instance of the folks in the lean-to replying "can you wait a second". After they let me know I could proceed, as I came around the corner the guy was still pulling on his shirt.

It looks like the stone ones may have integral fireplaces? Is that right?

None are perfect and its cool you used what was on hand. It looks real nice. We 2 of us] did one in the 80s out of Scotch Pine with cedar shingles with saw and broad axe. Still standing, still looks good. We didn't add a floor preferring fresh balsam occasionally. We also made sure every log sat on stone not the ground to prevent premature rotting.

Your collection of pictures is great, I had not seen the stone kind before. I can see it making a nice book or poster. I've stayed at a few of them, and it was nice to see them again while looking through your pictures. I mostly prefer to be in a small tent, but there have been times, especially on my early trips when I didn't have a tarp too, when getting into a lean to to dry things out was a huge help.

In addition to the "46 Club" Some eccentric person could start a "400" club" visiting every saltbox camping shelter in the Park...……………………………... Well, I guess not.

Or how about taking a dump in every thunderbox?

I've often wondered why nobody has started a "46 walking backwards" club. It seems like that or hopping on one foot should be the logical next thing, and either would have the advantage of making the participants instantly identifiable to one another when they met on the trail.
