A couple of years ago I took a lot of pictures of the Camp Harps Shelter. I took pictures of all four exterior sides and quite a number of interior pictures. I have done this for the Camp Harps, Church Creek, Tunnel Creek, Happy Four, Olympus, Olympus Guard Station (exterior only), and the Sol Duc Falls shelters. I have plans to do a few more shelters in this fashion later this summer. Most of the pictures I have of shelters in the Olympics are just one picture and no interior pictures.

edit: I took a bunch of pictures of each, so, hopefully, in the next few days I can post a few more of each.

Hi all— Don't know how many folks still regularly check this, but I figure it would be good to continue the shelter chronicle here. I've been on the trail crew for the last several seasons and we've done some work on a few of the shelters in my years. 2019—OGS—new roof and patched a purlin 2022— Fifteen Miles, Bogi—New roof, replaced failing rafters and purlins , structure stabilization, replaced few siding shakes as needed Here's us working on the 15 mile shelter roof last summer
Hyak, Bogi— New roof and replaced a few siding shakes I'm also a graduate student of historic preservation (prompted by my work on trail crew) and writing my thesis project on the shelters. Particularly focusing on the different eras of construction (styles and material) and how they contribute to the larger cultural landscape of the Park. Wanted to thank everyone that's contributed to this thread over the years—coming in handy in my research. I won't use any info or photos without explicit permission, but it's all been very helpful for my background info. Particularly loving the old trail crew photos. I got to visit many of the shelters last summer for condition assessments—when I get a chance, I'll resize the images and post them here. If anyone wants to chat shelters in the meantime, reply or shoot me an email. Cheers!

My buddies and I watched your crew for a while when you were working on OGS. I talked to your foreman/leader (at least I think he was) for a while. He was wearing a camo boonie as I recall. The work you folks were doing was great, and I'm pretty sure we saw your "shake processing center" just off the trail up river a little ways. Thanks for posting!

The only easy day was yesterday...
