More cabin pics


This is my niece Jadyn. She was pouting because the other kids "wouldn't let her have a turn on the sled". I told her to come over by them and I'd make sure she got a turn. She was laying in the snow while waiting. I told her I wanted to take her picture, so smile. She didn't. So I took her picture anyway. Then I said, "why won't you smile at me?" And she said, "I did, my body is shaped like a smile!"
These are the trees my nephew JoJo "planted" in these snow buckets for us. After Tim had shoveled and swept the porch clean, JoJo brought big chunks of snow up on it and ground it against the boards to "make snow" although he was surrounded by tons of snow all around him.

This is the "water hole". It's a natural spring that someone has dug out and attached a hose to and sheltered under this little A-frame. Lots of the people out here snowmachine or 4-wheel to this place to get fresh water.

Our friends, Rick and Patti. Patti always claims I spell my name wrong, but of course we all know she's the one that spells her name wrong!

Interesting how one can learn how to take care in such a cold and snowy area, as with the fresh water supply. Of course you know how to spell your name properly. Cute niece.

The fresh water spring is nice isnt it? we have one down the hill from our cabin that runs year round too. we dont have to haul water for the sauna, dishes or shower! But, I still won't drink it.. Bill does once in a while and hasnt gotten sick, but.....

Great pictures! Sure looked cold tho. I never knew that you could have a fresh water spring operating in the winter like that.
