The Brainerd Lake Recreation Area is used by outdoor enthusiast all year long. The building below is the warming house for Winter activities at the Gateway.
There is no electricity up this high in the BLRA, except for that generated by Mother Nature. Look along the roof top of this four barreled out house at all of the lightning rods ! Click for a better look, and you just won’t hardly believe how many are there !
Lightning above ten thousand feet of elevation is quite the experience !
In the photo above, we could tell as we drove up that all four of the seat lids were left open by the last users, because the circulation was impaired or disrupted. Sure enough as we started our morning sweep and paper routine we put the lids down and all odor was gone up the flue and a faint mist could be seen above each pipe.
