Fort Huachuca Boy Scout Cabin

On Fort Huachuca there used to be a cabin, it was way up in Garden Canyon, over a not so fun road, and the last time we went up there was in October of 2009, I took a bunch of pictures then, only two of which have survived.

This is the back of the cabin, inside there was a stove and 2 bunks.

This shows what looks to me like an addition that was added on later.

Now all that is left is part of the foundations...

And misc other debris in the clearing.

Even though I had heard that the cabin was torn down it was still sad to see the reality of it.  It would have been nice if they could have preserved it.  Though it was called the boyscout cabin it had not been used as such for years, it was just sitting up there minding its own business, housing some spiders, barely on Fort Huachuca, it is not to far from the post boundaries...

I guess they tore it down last year after the fires started, they were worried it was being used by drug runners, or others whom are not supposed to be here but are, unfortunately it looks like tearing down this wonderful piece of history is not going to stop that, not 50 yards from here on the other side of the clearing there was evidence of campfires, and trash left out and about, so the space s still being used, getting rid of the cabin has not stopped the issues or even slowed them down...

Next week we are going to see if the Girl Scout Cabin is still standing, it has been in use within the last 10 years or so, I know I have spent many a night there, so it will be interesting to see if they have gotten rid of that one as well...

I would love to see any photos people might have of this cabin, from before they tore it down to when it was still in use, please share!
