Heading north today to check on our wee cabin.
The west fork of the upper
Chippewa River begins to thaw.
Getting thru the existing snow, back to the cabin was an
experience.....now we understand the concept of snowshoes.
With each step, we found ourselves hip deep in snow. We
had to take turns taking the lead, creating a walkway. Several
times I found myself stuck, fallen on a knee...trying to climb up
& out in fits of laughter. I surely do not know how the deer have
survived this tricky winter....although we did come upon four,
running down the road, white tails up & bobbing.
We figure next time we are back in Winter (yes, that is the
Wisconsin town our property is in), the trillium will be in bloom.
