The Lower Nyack Snowshoe Cabin, built in 1927 in Glacier National Park, is a significant resource both architecturally and historically as a shelter about one day's travel north of the Theodore Roosevelt Highway for patrolling backcountry rangers.[2] The design originated at Yellowstone National Park, adapted in this case with a somewhat larger size.[3]
