In winter I live in a Finnish-Style log cabin built in 1934 by the Civilian Conservation Corps as the Ranger’s Home for the Marcell District it is Listed the National Register of Historic Buildings. The cabin is located on a small ridge (1451 elevation) overlooking Rainier lake (EN37do). In the winter I work as a Volunteer in the Visitors Center.
