It was a nice couple of days in the Caribou Hills on Friday and Saturday. I hauled in some gear to make some improvements on the old cabin so some chores actually got done too. 25 years ago we used to have a lot more black bears in the spring come through here and trash the cabins. Mine got broke into a total of 8 springs and so I didn't put much into making it real nice because it wasn't paying out. But that doesn't happen any more so I'm fixing the old joint up a little better. I'm looking awfully low rent district compared to my neighbors. I remember one year I left a box of wine in the cabin. It was unopened but when the bear broke in and found the wine he bit the box and drank it. That year when I came in after breakup was the absolute worst I had ever seen. Its like that bear partied in that cabin for days and systematically destroyed everything inside. He even ripped the insulation out of the walls. What a mess.
On waterhole trail looking up into the high country. There is a stream at the bottom that some of us use to get drinking water. Its good water too. It looks a lot different now since the fire came through here. You can see forever.
Friday night at the cabin...sunset.
