The accommodations were a single room cabin, no electricity, no running water, no indoor plumbing, no phone, no internet and just a pot belly stove for heat.
It was very cold heading for the outhouse at night with temps at -10 degrees

The days would start with snow until 12:30 pm and then the clouds would part and the sun would shine.
The snow shoeing was done on the Superior Hiking Trail (SHT). We were the first to hike on the trail this season as we broke trail for 7 or 8 miles on the trail (15-16 miles round trip)
The mornings were beautiful
But the evenings were even more spectacular!
The nights had millions of stars and the Milky Way was very prominent.
Right out in front of our cabin a bird feeder where we watched birds and squirrels getting something to eat in the cold
