Early this Fall I posted a short musical slideshow of the Suomi Hills Region in it's early Autumn beauty. However, my family does not restrict our northwoods visits to the warmer times of the year. We just spent three glorious Winter days at our cabin. You need to understand that in late December the only way to reach "Hoeg Hollow" (our cabin) is on foot. Heat is provided by a wood stove. Thus, when we arrived the temperature in our cabin was 15F. Water is provided by "yours truly" heading down to the lake with a manual ice auger to drill a hole through the ice! Our cabin is definitely off the grid!
Enjoy a few photos from the last few days spent cross-country skiing in the Suomi Hills Wilderness! This morning when I took the first two photos, the temperature was -5F. As the trails are sheltered from the wind, one is always warm! You may also want to watch this brief YouTube video of the bonfire we had out on the ice in the middle of the lake!
