Lodges and Huts

Letters of Peter Grubb
July 22, 1935

Dear Nannie and Grandpa,

I am having a grand time climbing. So far we have climbed 8 peaks, 6 of which were first assents - I took a side trip of 50 miles in 3 days with two other boys knapsacking. We went to scout out the cross country trip from Horseshoe lakes to Marion lake. Yesterday we climbed the first 13,000 ft peak, Mt. Pinchot. We went up in 1 hour 30 min. from Pinchot pass and came down in 33 minutes. For the last four days we have been caught in heavy hail storms on the tops of Ruskin, two unnamed peaks and Pinchot. Hope you are all well.

Love from Peter
