a walk to the cabin

The morning after my Dad's service my brother Gary, Randy & I walked to my brother Ron & Deb's cabin. If you click the top pic you can see the cabin in the distance. It was so beautiful, quiet and peaceful up there.

Most of the time I was walking on top of the crusted snow, but every once in a while I broke through and that made for some pretty hard trudging. But it was good exercise.

The sun was so warm on our faces as we sat on the porch and talked and talked. Gary is one of my dearest friends. Randy & I are so grateful to have such a close relationship with him.

This the view that we're use to seeing when we go back there either in the summer or fall. Click the pic and you'll see the blue Harvestor silo on the farm in the distance.

I was thrilled to find a picture I took October of '08 (below) in the same spot as I took this winter pic. How cool is that! I love the contrast. I might have to frame them side-by-side.

Gary & I are basking in the sun. Seriously, I don't care much for all the sunshine in Phoenix, but I loved being cold and feeling the warmth of the sun on my face while in Wisconsin. Just the best feeling.

I agree those Pioneer Woman Apple Dumplings are the best! They should go on the menu as a tradition!
