PARKS — The foundation is done and a contractor has put up the walls on the new Smith Gap warming hut for snowshoers and backcountry skiers at Mount Spokane State Park.

Warren D. Walker snapped this photo to document the effort on Sunday.

Steven Christensen, park manager, said it's unlikely the hut will be ready for use this winter, but there's still a possibility.  Either way, volunteers will be needed next summer to finish the inside, he said.
