Cabins, huts, inns, lodges and lookouts

Shelter from the elements comes in many forms. The mountain lodge embodies a transition from sleeping under the stars to sleeping at home. 

Club lodges provide a place for members to gain shelter but also a place to meet. They express the character of a club.  When they are built of native materials and seemingly grow from the earth, they help relieve the stresses of daily life.

Lodges, huts, and cabins express a powerful sense of place which reminds us of our identification with the areas nearby which we enjoy. But these structures do not last forever. They burn down or give way to the forces of nature.  We should cherish the heritage that they embody. Sometimes they have been restored, relocated to more appropriate places, or removed entirely. They bend to nature as well as live with nature.

Some of them have been placed on the Register of Historic Places. Some have served as fire lookouts or meeting places in past years. Many are available to be enjoyed by members of other clubs, affiliated with the Federation, on a reciprocal basis.

We try to enjoy them as well as preserve them. They are part of the heritage of the Federation of Western Outdoor Clubs.
