I spent ten consecutive unforgettable summers at the H-Bar-G, beginning in 1976. Lou, Anne and their daughters Julie and Jill became like family over those years. For a city kid from L.A., discovering the peace and majesty of this place was a life-changing experience. I met a slew of global souls from every corner of the Earth at the hostel, some of whom I'm still in touch with 30 years later. I'll never forget this special place or the man who was gracious enough to share it with the world.
