I don't even know where to begin in regards to this photograph. This image brings up many feelings inside of me. The loudest one being that I thank my lucky stars that I am not still cooking in that kitchen. I do, however, feel that this woman is a much stronger person than I am. I am used to my six burner commercial stove and all of the appliances that make life much easier. I am not sure I could have lasted 12 years if I was cooking over an open flame. The crew immediately started wondering about bear problems. How did they keep bears out of the food? Did someone sleep around the fire pit? Seems like some legit questions. It is amazing to look back at the past 85 years and see how this lodge has evolved. It is another beautiful day up here. The high yesterday was 46º with a low of 26º. The sun is shining and I have seen more bluets pop up over the last 24 hours. I will be giddy when I see our local trillium make their appearance. Now, time to go clean our big stove. I guess that is one good thing about cooking over a fire pit, you don't have stove part day. That is the day we clean everything on our stove. It happens twice a week. I better stop procrastinating and get to cleaning. Happy Hiking. f
