    Old huts

    Looking back through some pictures of a fair few years ago I came across these two huts.
    Any body recognise them

    Not bad @gonetropo dont know it by the name snowflake, it was in the Bluff stream, used to have newspaper plastered all over the inside.... made for interesting reading. It may have been a rabbitters hut I think.

    I do WISH people on here would put their TRUE Location
    I personally think age and location should be "compulsary"

    You wouldn't want to get too far off the track in there without a compass or gps either.. How's the inside of the hut mate? Still waterproof, stove still ok?
