“There’s really no better way to experience the great outdoors than from a rustic penthouse of a structure built entirely of rough-hewn logs,” said park superintendent Michael Reynolds, who added that each all-wood skyscraper would hold enough cots to comfortably bed 4,000 visitors and that all rooms would include a private wood-burning stove. “While there won’t be any electricity and you’ll have to descend as many as a hundred flights of stairs to relieve yourself in the woods, the high-rises will offer the best views Yosemite has to offer. Apart from our mountaintops, of course. And what’s more, these buildings will blend in perfectly with the surrounding environment because they will be constructed from giant sequoias sourced right here in the park.” #TheOnion

  1. The Facebook comments on Skurka’s article are either hilarious, or painful, depending on how you look at it.

    I thought his article was one of the most pragmatic and sensible articles on the topic that I’ve ever read.
