Overview

Overview

Tanis Mesa South Cabin is located in a duplex with Tanis Mesa North Cabin. The cabin is tucked between Tanis Mesa and the Brabazon Mountain Range, offering year-round relaxation and recreation.

The site can be accessed by wheeled plane, depending on conditions. An airstrip is adjacent to the cabin. Visitors are responsible for their own travel arrangements and safety, and must bring several of their own amenities.

Natural Features:

The cabin sits on mostly flat terrain surrounded by blueberry bushes. Interspersed stands of cottonwood, alder and willow begin about half a mile from the cabin.

Visitors can enjoy views of Tanis Mesa, which sits half a mile to the west. Tanis Mesa is a unique geologic feature that stands about 500 feet above the cabin. The peaks of the Brabazon Range are a mile to the east, with elevations of over 3,000 feet.

Wildlife in the Brabazon Mountain Range includes moose, brown bear and mountain goats.

Recreation:

Tanis Lake is 2 miles north of the cabin and can be hiked to relatively easily except for the last quarter mile, which is dense brush. Hikers are rewarded with views of Fassett Glacier cascading into the lake's northeast end.

The Brabazon Mountains offer opportunities for excellent mountain goat hunting. Moose and brown bear hunting is good around the cabin.

Facilities:

This is the south half of a 14x40-ft. A-frame stylecabin. It sleeps five people and comes equipped with four single bunks and a sleeping loft. The cabin also has a table and benches, oil heater, broom, picnic table, fire ring and outhouse. A 12x12-ft. meat shed is located outside, which is shared with Tanis Mesa North Cabin.
