I couldn’t have thought of a better way to wrap up our summer, than by taking a trip up north to go camping in the wilderness, miles away from anything and everything. The Yukon is already one of my favourite places to go, but far out into the Stewart River at the beginning of September is now definitely on the top of my list. To top this trip off, Logan an I had the amazing opportunity to use the natural resources around us (mainly Spruce and Cottonwood), to build – yes friends, you guessed it, a door.
There has been a family cabin at this special spot on the Stewart River for about 20 years now, and no sooner does this place have more visitors than it has ever had (8 people), than a second cabin is just about ready. All it needs is the front built in, and a door to make it complete. Well, needless to say, Logan got busy with the chainsaw mill.
The door was complete within a day or so and installed just in time for the first frosty evening. Our only regret is that we wished we had more time to enjoy it. (Pictured below, Logan with the chainsaw mill (left) the completed door (middle & above), and the view from the cabin (right)).
It was an enriching experience, and one we hope to repeat again soon, but for now, it’s back to our little wood shop in Van, and time to gear up for more exciting times to come.
