The snow was poor but good enough....a few places had short brown spots. Solitude was good. There were few people in this popular place b/c of poor snow but also it was Super Bowl Sunday. We went 1st to the new South Maxwell Shelter. I doubt the forest service appreciated that someone built a fire ring in the shelter & knocked out a cedar board near the roof so smoke would vent out. The place does need a wood stove. The 2nd shelter looked in good shape. The best map for the area is a forest service map you can get from the Detroit Ranger District. It's helpful b/c it shows the numbered intersections. My new REI map has the new shelter on it but not the numbered intersections.Members: Scott Hovis, Brad Bennett, Keiko Bryan.
