When I went through Pie Town on the cdt in 1980, there was next to nothing 
in town.  I believe there was a general store and post office and across the 
street was an old, metal Quonset hut that was half Rock Shop and half 
residence.  I stayed there for a day or two drying out from snow storms and 
repacking my pack with new supplies.

It is very hard to fathom that there might be "trophy homes" built out there 
in the nothingness of the high desert/divide!
