This summer has been record breaking in terms of snowpack, cold temperatures, and rain. That means we will not be getting into the mountains as usual for day hikes and backpacking trips.
When I realized the weather was going to wreak havoc on our usual outdoor recreation plans, I decided to see what other ways we could get into the mountains and enjoy ourselves. I discovered there are actually several Forest Service Cabins in the Beartooths. I had not realized this before!
So, I thought we would reserve a couple cabins for various dates through the summer and give them a try. They are at lower elevations, so the snow is less problematic (although road conditions have been impacted by run-off)
The Meyers Creek Cabin is located near Nye, at the Meyers Creek Forest Service Work Station.
It appears to be a little old house that was a beloved home to someone. There are iris, rose bushes, rhubarb, and lilacs planted around the foundation. The cabin has two private bedrooms, running water, and electricity. It is equipped with a refrigerator and electric stove. It sleeps 6.
We enjoyed our two nights there. A beautiful spot!
