Hiker Accidentally Stumbles Across This Unique Shelter…You May Want To See It

A guy was out for a long hike by himself. As he was hiking he stumbled across this unique shelter. He took some pics of it. We thought you might like to see it.

The hiker never mentioned if the person who built it ever showed up. Notice the preemptive wall which is used to slow erosion.

They use ones that look kinda like that in England. Anyway, it’s super cool whatever it is.

    They are called wattles, they are made by weaving willow or alder or other pliable branches (or even strips of split wood, black ash is used for weaving baskets of black ash) Usually the wattles are covered with mud like plaster in old house construction, its called wattle and daub

    The shelter has twisty ties on it. Oh how mysterious. I always wondered what happened to my Wonder Bread twisty ties. and yea no one wonder the only other person just posted a wikipedia excerpt. Nothing mysterious here.

    Maybe a seasonal fish trap for high creek or river water. When the creek lowers the fish are trapped in this system.Just a thought.

    I think i agree that this is for erosion.it seems a bit light for a shelter.it lacks any kind of roof for example.not even a tarp.and i didnt see any signs of somebody camped,not even foot prints.it would possibly be usefull for a heat reflector wall which i thought of first seeing the rock pile.and possibly also as above stated a kind of fish trap.i could see that.but as a shelter id say no.it will only serve as a wind break at best.its neat though.
