Lodges and Huts

Letters of Peter Grubb
August 24, 1936

Dear Grandpa,

Here I am back from a long and thrilling summer after my high trek outing. I went to Norden to work on a new dormitory which should be finished by Christmas. I was there for two weeks and a lot was accomplished. I got your letter concerning Shasta, and I am very sorry to say that when I go there with Oliver Kehrlein and Lewis Clark the week after next, we are going to climb and descend by the east and north faces in order to study the progress of the Whitney glaciers and others. Therefore I will not be able to get around to Horse Camp this time, much as I would like to. While at Norden I met the new temporary custodian, Mr. Cook, who will be there a month.

You will notice I am enclosing the complete list of mammals seen or noted last summer (1936). I have also a list of birds which I would be glad to send you if you wish. Hope to see you all soon and I hope all is well.

Love from, Peter
