I just read this article in the November 2010 issue of Backpacker Magazine:

The magazine was laying around my house for two months and I finally got to the end of it. Anyway, this was a fascinating story. Does anyone know if it's true? Thanks,

Taylor, I read the same article two months ago and confess that it was so good (as Steve Friedman's articles usually are) that I took the bait and did some Google searches on some of the events in it - which led me to Steve Friedman's website: ... -2008.html

Sorry to dash your hopes - but the author himself says this is fiction. It's a great story though - and I know firsthand that magical places like this do exist.
