Pioneer Day May Creek Cabin Montana

There I am a little late since this trip was while he kids were still in Florida.
This year we have spent Pioneer Day in an isolated 100 year old miner cabin in Montana.

We first stopped in a campground at the beginning of the trail since we got there late. After breakfast and packing, we are ready for the 2 mile hike to the cabin, not knowing how long it would take us or how difficult the hike was....
Turned out it was a pretty quick and super easy walk through the woods and meadows. We did not have a watch so maybe this is why it seems so short...


We found our cabin... It was right there after this little bridge, nested in the woods.

While Karen is cleaning the inside with bleach (because of the mice....) I am cutting some wood and the dogs are taking a little nap....


Rissa is our big four legged chicken.... She is scared of everything that makes noises or that is out of the ordinary.... she spent long times hiding under the beds... When we walked at night, if she hears a noise, she runs and sit right behind me.... I think that if she could, she would even jump in my arms....



The cabin was pleasant overall despite the mice running all over the roof and making very strange noises. Not seeing anybody in 3 days, not having cell phone or electricity, TV, PC and other marvels of modern times, was a good way to celebrate Pioneer Day.... I felt like Charle Ingalls cutting wood for the little house in the prairie....

It was a really relaxing week end and I can't wait to be able to do that again.
