Yeah, it really was ... I could have cast a fishing line from the balcony. Accommodations were simple but nice; it's not meant to be a luxury hotel, but it's well above rustic while maintaining a comfortable charm. Only quibbles: slow internet; lousy TV signal on a few channels; a tad noisy (i.e., not well insulated between rooms)

... are several buildings, all built around the same time) which apparently has the most interactive hauntings. We took lots of photos, as suggested, but didn't see anything. **EDIT - weeks later, we looked at Justin's photos and could see things - see the uploaded photos**. We were led downstairs into a room they called 'Lucy's room', as apparently a spirit they call Lucy haunts it. The guide asked Lucy if she was cold, and to please shut the door. The ...

an easier grip. Then there’s the Farmer’s Walk with heavy milk urns carried for
a distance, and round stone lifts. These are all undertaken by some big beefy
lads – no skinny boys here! I didn’t see any girls either. Women are involved
in bodybuilding, of course, but I’ve never heard of a World’s Strongest Woman
competition or seen ...
... came a Long-Tailed Weasel. It headed off to the kitchen and collected its mouse breakfast. Mystery solved. Weasel came all summer; ate all the mice.
The trip to the Pika rocks was about 1.5 miles out and back, so a good bit further than we went yesterday and on less easy terrain, but MIN was game, and we made it back in one piece and still on speaking terms. We went into the Visitor's Center to have a hot drink, and, since it ...
... brought our one water bottle rather than our water packs. Um, let me just say this was no Town Run, or even Brown County. There are so many rocks in some areas, I don’t know how anyone could mountain bike up them! And I certainly wasn’t going to bike down them on our way back. Before I climbed up (by foot) the largest section of rock, I took a photo of Ben hiking up the “boulders” carrying his bike, as ...
