Suomi Hills Serenity

Two nights ago we had a killing frost. With temperatures plunging into the mid 20’s in extreme northern Minnesota, I knew it was time to shut down the water at my small northwoods cabin. As I drove the backroads through the forest approaching NorthStar Lake, the lakes were steaming in an attempt conquer the early morning sun. It was a magical, mystical time to be in the wilderness.
