"[Author David] Leavengood was familiar with summer lodges in the Poconos and the Adirondacks from the 19th and early 20th century, and he believes these would have influenced Reamer. 'But at Yellowstone, the lodge gets scaled up to the size of the Rocky Mountains. That's probably what intrigued me most. The shingles aren't just 18 or 20 inches. They go to 36 inches. The spans are greater, and the beams are double or triple those of smaller lodges on the East Coast.'"
