Stone Hut Memories

With the recent destruction of Mansfield’s Stone Hut, I decided to dig through my photos and see if I couldn’t put together a decent memorial.

Before anything else, I have to give a big thanks to Matt B and hutmaster Scott D.  Without those guys I never would have had a chance to enjoy those awesome nights on top of Vermont.

I’m not going to do much writing.  I just want to get these photos out there to share the memories.

There was food,

Dylan preps some meat.


Dave gets talked into eating a pickled egg.

and drinks.

Matt gets quatro loco!

The hutmaster getting into the Black Bush.

Some peaceful moments.

The Scotts contemplate the awesomeness of life at 3600 ft.

This photo has an incredibly weird focus, but I think it still captures something special about the time spent in that hut.

There was intergenerational fun,


and lots of shenanigans!

Dylan and Wesley get their groove on.


Jimmy and I pose for the camera.

Formal dress!

Aaron, Dylan, and the hutmaster sort things out.

Spending the night up there also provided the opportunity to take in some cool sights

especially if you put in a bit of effort.

Oh, and it also provided damn good access for skiing!

Both at night

and first thing in the morning


RIP Stone Hut.
