One Man and his Mountain

It was in the dying days of the 1980s when the lone survivalist made his new home up on the mountain. He'd traveled to many lands in search of the perfect survival retreat and what he saw before him completed the journey.

Mountain Retreat

What a place it was! Lush green vegetation, thousands of trees all around and friendly wildlife. Fresh water springs bubbled in various locations providing a water source the year around. The fresh smell of pine, fir and spruce filled the air and hummingbirds roved from tree to tree. Mountain Mike nodded to himself, he was home and now it was time to turn it into a real home.

Mountain Vegetation

At first just tents and the truck were shelter for the mountain man. Then over the years he got busy transforming it into a rugged, natural survival retreat.

Mountain Tent

The first structures were A-Frame sheds and this wood-lined warehouse shed. The actual height of it's roof was nearly twenty feet. For a lone builder that is challenging, at nearly 10,000 feet it is a feat of endurance and safety.

Mountain Warehouse

The yearly snows that came each winter took a fearsome toll on any structures not built to withstand their might. Even the steep pitch of the A-Frame was battered when a tree fell on it. The mountain survivalist saw his earlier efforts frustrated when a record-breaking year saw over 12 feet of snowpack descend onto the area! Cabins were damaged and some were even crushed! Mike knew he had to build his structures stronger in case the heavy snow came again.
