The oldest building/cabin on the rim, since absorbed into and accessed via inside hallway of Bright Angel lodge building. Various character traits fitting it's age including creaky wood floors, updated ski lodge wood interior and warm master bedroom with firm king bed with seperate bath. Gas fireplace on timer warmed the spirits for stuffing backpacks and helped warm the two room oasis, assisted by 3 fans we found in the closet, pre dozing. Refridgerator without freezer a plus for beverage and food storage. National Geographic Adventure website lists Bucky's at 15th of 15 top weird and wild "treasures" in the US National parks system ..."Coolest view from a lodge"...we couldn't agree more...enjoyed our early open door rim view, on a brisk morning, of a Creator's sunrise....perfect start to our backpack hike down to Bright Angel campground/Phantom Ranch for 25th wedding Anniversary celebration. ...down South Kaibab, up Bright Angel. We added a couple of photos....Cheers!
