35 Winters as a Hutkeeper in Yosemite.

“Howard Weamer has spent the past 35 winters as a hutkeeper in Yosemite National Park, where he spends the better part of his time immersed in writing, photography, and contemplation. Inspired by Weamer’s decision to disappear each season in search of poetic solitude in nature, filmmaker Jonathan Burhop, who normally produces TV for the Discovery Channel, National Geographic, and Animal Planet provides a glimpse into the life of this modern-day Han Shan.”
