Just inside and around the corner from the front desk was a patio filled with chairs and two low tables. A comfortable place to rest during the day, or to gather before taking off on an adventure.

There was no hot water. Instead an electric water heater was used as a shower head. A switch on it selected between cold, warm, and hot. Wire and wire nuts connected it to 110v power. Although it appeared makeshift, it worked well enough to get get clean.
