Around 1970 I was fighting a wildfire on Wedge Mountain and passed by an old log cabin very high up on Wedge Mountain - above Mountain Home Road and in the Mill Creek drainage, I believe. The cabin survived that fire. Does anyone know the history of this and what happened to it? Did it burn in the 1990 fire?

I did some sleuthing in Caltopo and satellite imagery shows a structure on the east slopes of Wedge Mountain (I can send you lat/long if you're interested). So probably still standing? The Mountaineers reference a "collapsed tin roof cabin" in their route description: https://www.mountaineers.org/activities/routes-places/wedge-mountain.

I have no idea about the history but would be interested in learning more! Certainly seems like a beautiful setting for a cabin.

That sounds like the same one I remember.

There was a hunting cabin up there belonging to the Schmitten family. It was there the last time I was there, some years ago. Kind of lean to style. There is undoubtedly info about it somewhere, they were a prominent family. I read it somewhere.
