We went to our cabin for the weekend and took our niece, Kari, with us. She was a lot of fun; she hadn't been to the cabin or on a snowmachine for about 8 years. She was a good sport; she didn't mind the cold, no shower, and having to use an outhouse plus she enjoyed our trail rides.
When we first arrived, my husband had to shovel off the porch just so we could get to the door.
Just for comparison - this is the porch in the summer.
Here's a view of the outhouse from the cabin porch. Sweetie will pack a trail over there with the snowmachine and then dig stairs down to the outhouse. Good thing nobody had to go in a hurry!
The little birds were begging for food within a few minutes of arrival.
We go about 1 mile from our cabin by snowmachine to this little a-frame to get water. It is a year-round spring that bubbles up from the ground. Someone has built this little shelter over a garden hose that comes up out of the ground. Lots of cabin people come here to fill up their jugs with fresh water.
Roxy, testing out the new staircase just carved by TimView from the outhouse! The stairs were a bit steep. After you've been snowmaching for a few hours and your legs are all wobbly it's a little hard to climb back up without a railing!
Taz, taking a peek at mommy!
