I don't recall anyone posting a link on this forum to this Outside Magazine article that was published last December, but it's a very informative read about the Hantavirus outbreak that occurred last summer in Curry Village.

(Note for anyone that might be concerned: all the "Signature Tent Cabins" that were being infested by mice have been removed from Curry Village. The article makes a salient point that the hantavirus is a short-lived virus (it dies less than 48 hours outside its host animal) so it was only the "ideal" conditions brought about how the Signature Tent Cabin were constructed that caused the Hantavirus outbreak to occur in the first place.)

Thanks for that. I completely missed it. It's a much more detailed account than I've seen anywhere else ("anywhere else" being mostly NPS's releases on the subject).
