Winter Wonderland

Deep in the snow.

We have had a BUNCH of snow in Minnesota. Elissa and I decided to venture out to Feträ to put up some more insulation. Since the city has not plowed our road much in the past, we figured we would be hiking in from the county road, about a quarter mile. We got some snowshoes, I packed up the new toboggan from Northern Toboggan and hit the road. Much to our surprise, the road was plowed. We were still very thankful for the snowshoes and the toboggan as we hauled the insulation to the cabin.

The weather was beautiful!

We both ventured into the woods a bit to enjoy the peacefulness.

It was a magical day that neither one of us wanted to end.

The creek never freezes.

Spring (Finally)

After late snowfalls and cold temperatures well into April, we were finally able to make the trek to Feträ to reconnect.  We had a beautiful spring day and we arrived to only just patches of snow.  We were all so excited to be there.  While the adults finished the insulation over one of the lofts, the kids played in the hammock.  We had a nice picnic lunch and a little walk in the woods.  A chance to drive out in to the pasture, and then it was time to head back.  With the sun going down, the temperatures would be dropping quickly.  More reason to finish the insulation.  Soon we will be ready for more days here.  Until next time.
