Skylar's Cabin Trip

Two weekends ago we took Skylar up to the family cabin near the north western corner of Algonquin Park. She had a blast and was so good the entire weekend. We were even able to let her off leash and she was careful not to wander too far and her reacall was amazing!

Running around on our first hike. The area across the road from the cabin was devasted by a tornado in the summer of 2006. The MNR harvested the uprooted trees and now there is a giant hole in the forest , but there are seedlings starting to come up now

Our last hike before we left. The cabin is on the southern part of the Canadian Shield, so it's very rocky, we hiked up a large slope and sat to admire the view.

Of course I was the one behind the camera all weekend, so there're no pics of me with Skylar. I'll have to fix that the next time we go.

Thanks everyone, she's doing so well. We're so happy that she came to live with us.

...are there many cabins on that lake? :)

Nope, no other cabins. Nathan's family bought all the land around the lake so no one else could build. Unfortunately lots of development is happening in the area so it's not as quiet as it used to be, lots of ATVs and traffic on the road now.:sad:

I'll add her right away! We got her on April 6th there's a thread somewhere around. We got her from Melinda who's neighbour found her eating her garbage. She only weighed 22lbs (she weighs 60lbs now!), Melinda nursed her back to health, then Nathan and I decided we wanted her, and the rest is history!

Thanks everyone, she really does look so much better than when we got her and she is definitely enjoying life. We're looking forward to bringing her up to the cabin for many more years, it is such a beautiful relaxing place.
