Not a "trail shelter", but the last remaining structure in the Queets Valley (other than the Ranger Station and the vault toilets at Salmon River and in the campground.)

Been listening to the audio version of Soul Catcher by Frank Herbert. In the book it mentions a shelter at Finley. I don’t recall there being a Finley shelter. Was Herbert taking creative license?

In the 90's we followed remnants of the old Finley Peak trail for a ways and I think I remember finding debris from some old structure up there.

During the winter of 2018-2019, the last extant structure from the original homestead community of Evergreen on the Queets, the George Anderson barn, collapsed.

Falls Camp Shelter, Upper Gray Wolf River, June 2020
Does anyone know what year this shelter was burned and what the circumstances were?

I believe it burnt in 2007 or early 2008. It was arson from what I was told.
