The cabin always has the same effect on me. It's old, homey, unpretentious, and it revitalizes me. The two resident cats love visitors. A writers retreat and artists home base, folks come here to renew their creative connections. Families spend time getting close. Fishermen escape into the time warp that makes a weekend feel like a week. The cabin is five minutes from the boat launch. Two weeks of fun on Lake Roosevelt feels like a lifetime. Hikers and photographers never run out of places to see.
The towering basalt cliffs above the cabin, house birds ranging from golden eagles to tiny canyon wrens. It’s one huge aviary. Morning doves coo and swallows swoop all day long. Photographers get shots of animals large and small such as mountain goats, cougars or coyotes. Fishermen hook salmon, sturgeon, trout and walley. Hikers have a field day. Boaters have miles of shoreline, coves and inlets to play along.
