Black & White view from the front yard of our house: Round Lake and Pitchoff peak. Note: this section of the lake is only ice-free due to a winter bubbler used to protect the boathouse (off-image to the left).

  1. This looks like a wonderful program–such fun to experience real winter weather and life on a farm. Kids seem to be thrilled with the adventure. I am a proud grandmother–proud of Pingry and of my granddaughter Maile Winterbottom for venturing outside of her comfort zone.

  2. Penelope and I really enjoyed the pictures and story lines from your blog posts! The terrain is so beautiful, and the food sounds delicious! Keep the pics coming!
