Greetings from Log Cabin Hideaways! This year, November and December some how got switched. We had record cold in November causing the lakes to freeze up unusually early. By the 2nd week of December we already had well over a foot of ice! Then the weather turned very warm with 5 nights above freezing, which melted much of our snow. Now January is holding up to its reputation, COLD! So far, our coldest has been negative 30, but the last few days have felt colder! Only in the negative 20’s, but lots of wind. Our guests are still venturing out daily from the cabins, but staying out of the wind by traveling on the woodland trails. It is pretty amazing how warm you can get snowshoeing through the woods! It is easy to over-dress.
Wildlife sightings so far this winter: Pine Martins, Fisher, lone Wolf and lots of song birds at the feeders. Have not seen any Lynx, but have seen tracks between Triangle and Lark cabin` Last winter we had numerous Lynx sightings, people were seeing them in many locations. Their numbers are up as, naturally, are their main prey, Snowshoe Hares.
SNOW! We got, a much needed, snowfall last Saturday. We now have about a foot of snow in the woods. Lake skiing is harder now with the new snow, but NO slush reported!
We still have some weekend dates open in January and of course we have some great mid week deals if you can get away.
