Length of Trip: Three days, two nights (August 2014)

Method of Transportation:  Henry the Honda

Food: chili, tortilla chips, hot dogs, veggie burgers, salad, bagels, cheese & crackers, yogurt & granola, coffee… you get the idea

Accommodations: A yurt! I was very excited to sleep in  a yurt and it did not disappoint. Now I’m spending my days dreaming about building my own off-grid yurt.

Highlights: 

The skylight: The top of the yurt had a clear dome – built in skylight.  We were even so lucky as to have a thunderstorm, so while we thanked our lucky stars we weren’t in a tent when the storm happened we also watched the lightning through the dome over the bed.  Awesome.

Canoeing:  The yurt rental came with a canoe rental for the duration of our stay.  This wasn’t mentioned on the website so it was a bonus surprise.
