This year I decided to snap pictures along the way...taking in the scenery. Boy, is there a lot of it!! I hope you enjoy these photos!
This cabin is an old historic ranger station that was commissioned by Teddy Roosevelt! You may recognize it from the Hearth Magazine feature we did there a few years ago! I really want to stay here sometime. There's electricity, but no running water. There's an outhouse! It's only $40 per night...so good! Nothing short of cozy. It was occupied, so we snapped a pic and hurried out!
We spent Christmas eve sledding down the road behind my parents house. My dad used his 4wheeler to pack down the road which made it nice and slick for all of the big kids. We had a blast, and the boys did too!
We got back to the house after sledding and the power was out. I LOVED that we couldn't use the computers, or watch tv, or check our phones (only service through wifi out there). It was really refreshiong and sort of magical to watch the snow falling by the light of a kerosene lamp. With 5 boys (4 of whom are under the age of 5), we were glad that it finally kicked back on so we could see to play and color. It was truly a Christmas to remember!!
