We spent lots of time tromping around in the woods and skiing on the beaver pond. Animal tracks were abundant but we never saw any critters. We made pop corn and our meals on a camp stove and played farkel in front of the fire. We slept on wooded bunks wearing most of our winter gear including hats and mittens. We didn't change our clothes or wash up until we got home.
It has been a mild winter and camping is one of our favorite family activities. So we joined the Green Mountain Club and rented a cabin in the NE Kingdom for the weekend. We found the place in the dark with a little help from a local neighbor. Mother nature saw us coming and the mild winter turned into real winter as we arrived. It was 3 degrees the first night and the high for the weekend was 15.
