Default Finally made it to the yurt!

I haven't been up to the yurt in about 2 months, mostly because of other obligations. This is the longest I have ever left it. The snow is still really high in the woods (4-5 feet deep), so I had to snowshoe in. The snow was crusty on top, and soft underneath. It was not much fun, but I did it. A total of 2.5 miles of some rough travel. Sinking in the snow and then trying to rip the snowhoes out, over and over takes a toll pretty quick, especially when you have been as inactive as me this winter.

Anyway, all was good, in fact, there was no snow on the yurt at all:

It had to have been heartlifting seeing your yurt again after two months.

It was good to be back. Once this snow melts, I can go whenever I want. I am usually up there several times a week. This winter has been extra long it seems.

Thats a great looking site!

Where is it located?

Our snow is still deep in the backyard but most of the south slopes are clean now. I went down to just north of St Louis yesterday and it was a whole different climate zone, green everywhere, green wheat and alfalfa fields. Still, it felt good to get back here.

The yurt is in Upstate NY in the Adirondack Park in Herkimer County. Normally we drive in there, but with snow, you really can't. Looking forward to summer!

What an awesome setup! New to the forums. Doing research and planning in hopes of moving into a yurt year round in Western Montana within the next year or so. Saw your recent post and just wanted to say hi and thanks so much for starting this forum! Great resource: One that I will be chirping on more and more for advice in the near future.

Cheers!
