French Ridge Hut

YIC has just returned from an excellent 2 day walk to French Ridge Hut. The hut takes the prize for the most spectacular setting to date. It's high on Mt French's ridge (as the name suggests) with wonderful views of the surrounding peaks and glaciers. YIC was the only tramper in the hut. The only other folks there were Rolf & Karina who had just walked in for a week as volunteer wardens. For those who like to commune with nature, YIC recommends a visit to the Mt French toilet. Check out the photo below - it is most commodious.
