Washington marks its 100th year of operation this month when it
opens for the full-service season June 3.

for its Golden Anniversary on that date, celebrating its 50th year
two high mountain hikers' huts join another six operated by AMC along a
56-mile-long stretch of the Appalachian Trail in New Hampshire's White

sustainable systems such as solar and wind power. These backcountry hostelries
provide meals, lodging, and educational programs in spectacular mountain locations,
often miles from the nearest road.
