The James Hogue Shack (Aspen Mountain)

The James Hogue Shack used to be on Aspen Mountain, but was removed in September 2016.  It is thought that it had been there for one and a half or two years.  It was well-hidden in the trees above the Shadow Mountain Condominiums, but could be seen from the top of Lift 1A.  For information click the links for articles below.  The two photo shown below were a part of the first and fourth articles (click on images to enarge):
