had no end. Drove all night. Arrived at the Hostel in
the Forest around noon on the 10th. This hostel was the second
one that I had ever been in, and it was unusual to say the
least. Fantastic! It was just like my guidebook, "Hostel
USA", had described it.
leading into the hostel is very rough--that was also described in
the guidebook, so I was prepared for that. I wasn't going to
let a few 2 ft. deep potholes stop me! And it was well
worth the effort, and numerous scratches on my car!

View looking from inside my hut onto deck.
View from my deck overlooking the water.
Inside of the hut. Shaped somewhat like an octogon, it was
screened in from waist height up on all sides so you could go to
sleep listening to the crickets and other forest noises. Very
here to add your text.
The shower room. If you've even wondered what it's like to
take a shower in the middle of the woods--the other side is open to
the forest. I took my shower very early
in the morning.
Here the two large geodesic domes built back in the 70's. The
one on the left was being used as a dorm room with bunks. The
one on the right contained the kitchen, office, ...One of the
attached building contained a large, screened in poolroom.
There was also a laundry, library, and a piano.

Here's another building, "The Glass House". It is used for
meditation & quiet reflection. It's a short, peace
walk through the woods to get there.
