Around our community
  
We have a unique mixture of tiny one room cabins from
bygone times as well as beautiful log homes built in recent years.
Our little community is carved out of boreal forests and
offers a very special lifestyle - from summer residents,
to the hardy individuals that live here year-round.

Please take time to browse through our photo section,

Turkey Day 2003
The community enjoyed the hospitality and a great Thanksgiving dinner
put on by Marcy and the students.  We were treated to a special poem
and song by AJ and Erica and a good time was had by all.
