For over a century, a small network of alpine huts have operated in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Run by off-the-grid teams called "Croo", they span 50 miles of the AT and serve home-cooked meals each day to their many guests. However, to make food, they need ingredients. Mack Brewer and the Croo at The Lake of the Clouds Hut hike in 70 pounds of supplies several times a week to feed bellies and fuel souls.
