Cabin Bound

Marshal took leave over the Memorial Weekend, and we headed with boat, dogs, and kids, and a packed truck over the mountain passes of Hwy 20, across the north of the state. The road opened less than 48 hours before our trip!
Lake Roosevelt has been drained in the generating of power, and the Columbia River has receded closer to its old paths. It was a shock to see the changed river basin.
Little Cabin in the woods was a welcome sight, intact, uninhabited by bears or other troublesome critters. The mice were quite respectful of the place. The pack racks were a different story in Marshal's shed. They consumed everything that wasn't steel and made the entire shed one gigantic nest. Marshal spent our last day reclaiming it.
