As you may know from our previous Porkies adventure this fall, the pack was inspired to celebrate Thanksgiving by getting a gang together to have an outdoors adventure from the comforts of a rustic cabin.
|We met Karen at the M-38 junction. She hopped|
into the van with Kathy, Mark & Bella.
|Due to a misadventure at the Ranger Station, we hiked|
to the cabin to see if we could enter without the door's combination.
|It was the last day of deer season. Orange was in style!|
|The front door doesn't work?|
No problem for those seeking adventure!
|Me and Bella watched that no one caught Karen sneaking in.|
|So with the cabin unlocked, we headed back for the gear.|
|As usual, I hauled lame kibble.|
|Mark was the only one smart enough to tow a sleigh!|
|We love an adventure!|
|Back at camp, Mark spied pots -n- pans in the river.|
|Sandy grabbed some great tasting river water for the filter.|
|Mark checked out his haul while me and Bella hunted wild game.|
|Oh this is a pretty spot!|
|After our little hike, it was R&R time.|
|Mark got some wood split for the stove.|
|After dinner group photos|
|A 9-candle super light - first on a plate...|
|...and later in Mark's river pan.|
It helped the UNO players see their cards!
|Where's the dog??|
|I don't know.|
|On Sunday, the gang hiked the Union Mine Interpretive Trail,|
right nearby camp.
|The rushing water made me nervous, of course.|
|Hunting was prime, as usual for the Porkies.|
|Aww! The gang had to head back home Sunday after lunch.|
|So me and my pack went for a little hike.|
We stop by this warming shack each ski season.
|I showed Sandy the way across the Union River.|
|Back at the cabin, I stayed on the job.|
I'm an outside dog ya know.
|HUMMMM...vittles warming on the wood stove.|
|Sandy updated the cabin's journal with|
the gang's weekend adventures.
|I was getting heavy eyelids by later in the evening.|
Its been a busy, busy weekend.
|Sandy adds more to the cabin journal.|
|Monday morning, Arly restocked the wood before we headed out.|
|Then we packed up to head home.|
|We spied this eaglet along South Boundary Road....|
|...and it's parent, the grand Bald Eagle.|
We had such an excellent Thanksgiving weekend adventure! We hope you can join us next year.
