April Spring Trip turned Winter

Linda, Sarah and I arrived late Thurs night. (April 1) . As we struggled to find the cabin in the dark we were surprised at how much snow was still there. Over two feet, everywhere. We brought the 4 wheeler and the sled and parked the car and trailer about 2.5 miles away at the warming hut. The trip back and forth to the cabin on the 4 wheeler was gorgeous when the sun came out.

It was conference weekend and that made it an even bigger treat.

We were there to work and we did. Painting (2 gallons of primer and 6 gallons of wall paint), internet service, lighting fixtures, kitchen faucet, water heater drain, toilet rebuild (again), dishwasher repair (yahoo!), mud room shelving, etc. Thank goodness for the lumber store (Island Park Builder's Supply). 

Good thing we had plenty of work to do. It snowed about 12 inches the first few days we were there. We only went out a few times. When we did it was very lovely. The large birds were visible in the good weather and there were some animal tracks to keep us guessing.
