Wintery Wisconsin

We all decided to go up to the cabin this past weekend for the super bowl.  It was a great weekend for snowmobiling and just hanging out inside the cabin.

First of all, when we say "cabin" this is what we mean.  It is actually a huge, beautiful, log home.  This is the backside, facing the lake.

 This is four out of the six kids.  They had a blast in all the snow.

This is what a lot of the trails look like up north.  The ride is always beautiful!  I took this picture in Watersmeet Michigan.

The kids and I thought this was so cool. All over the Ontanogan River, there were animal tracks going to and from the holes in the ice for fresh water.

I love the pillowy tufts of snow on the river.

I have been eyeing this vintage camper for a couple of years now.  It has just sat there untouched.  It's so cute.  I actually always carry my hitch with me in the car in hopes of someday coming across one of these to bring home.  A girl can dream!

This is Fletch's Place.  I don't know who Fletch is, but I just love his little red cabin in the woods!

This one of the many frozen lakes in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.  Usually, the lakes have a few ice fishing huts on them, but this one was untouched, being that it was in the middle of nowhere.

Can you imagine clearing trees like these to build on a lot?

Back in Eagle River, the local firemen build an ice castle every year.  It is amazing to see.

In some places, you can see bits and pieces of algae out of the lake, from when they cut the bricks out.

Isn't this the prettiest blue?

This is part of our very modest pile of fire wood.  The locals put us to shame, with their enormous piles!   

Have a great week, Anne and I are planning another road trip for Friday.  This time, we are headed to Hannibal Missouri. 

Hello Uncle Sornie!
