I was out exploring in the wild hinterlands of Utah a while back, a backcountry cabin caught my eye. There aren’t many other cabins (or mines) out here, so I definitely wanted to pay this one a visit.

Built by a man named Earl Anderson and his sons in 1941, the cabin probably started off life as a single room shack and been improved over the years to the large cabin that I found. It is quite a neat place now. The main room is well-built with bunks for twelve (!) with a dining area and the back rooms (which look to me like the original structure), serve as a kitchen and storage area.

From reading the log book, the place is well used. It looks like the Anderson family have been coming out here ever since the place was built! That is quite a feat in itself.

Please leave this cabin, like all backcountry cabins, in better condition than you find them. Haul out all of your trash. Cabins like this are available on a first-come, first served basis. If someone is already staying at the cabin, consider finding another place to camp.
