Musta not enjoyed his Mountainhouse.
Leave "quit" at the car.  Embrace the trail as your friend.  Expect to enjoy yourself, and to be amazed.

The story mentions that "they found nearly 1,000 coprolites buried in a corner near the entrance, which looks like it served as an ancient latrine."

My mind wanders to the Dodson and the use of trowels.
Leave "quit" at the car.  Embrace the trail as your friend.  Expect to enjoy yourself, and to be amazed.
