Minnesota Farmer


No cell phone, no wallet, no keys

When we descend the hill to the cabin on Sand Lake in northern Minnesota we enter a zone of no cell phone service.  I also take my wallet and my keys and put them aside.  It’s slow down time, I don’t need them anymore.100_2203The railroad tie steps have been there for generations, the hand rail is covered in lichen.  Things move slower at Sand Lake.

100_2200Although half of the cabin is made of logs, we do have electricity and running water.  There are three rooms and a loft and beds for eight.

100_2197The old boat house sits near the waters edge.  The lower level is storage, the upper level will hold beds for up to six in a pinch, but is better suited for two.

100_2199This last winter the ice pushed up the anchoring point for the dock.  The water is a little high so we must wait for a dryer time to fix it.

100_2198We come here not so much for the water or the view, but for the solitude and the memories.
