Pearson Cabin, Cache & Dog House (1927-1928)

The timber constructed cache is elevated ten feet above the ground to protect the contents from animals (note removable ladder) and make it visible above the snowline during winter. Eight two-bay dog kennels were built into the slope below the cache with a small fence enclosure.
