Cozy and cute,
with an awesome backyard.
All the comforts of home,
in the wilderness.
It’s good to be,
in a little cabin,
in the big woods.
I like the neighbors!
Cheers to you from Alberta, Canada~
Note: No reliable wifi here, so bye for now!

That’s a beautiful cabin, Cindy! I would love to spend a few days there.
Yes. It is snug and special. Take good care John დ
You have your own little slice of paradise right there! It’s perfect ❤️🐻
Yes indeed. We understand each other perfectly Teresa დ
Are you in Jasper? I recognise the Parks Canada red chairs. It’s a gorgeous time of year to be visiting! Have fun. 🙂
Not in Jasper this time. I remember the elk mating last time in Jasper. Such a thrill. The red chair concept is genius დ
Looks like a perfect get away. Love it!
It hits the spot. A needed does of Mother Nature’s nurture დ
looks like a lovely place to stay!
It is practically perfect in every way, just like Mary Poppins! დ
Utterly charming. We did a tour from Banff on up north years ago, and stayed in a wonderful cabin like that. Good memories.
Yes. Good memories are made in good cabins! დ
Yes. I love it here and for some reason I have wifi right now! დ
Sounds like the best of both worlds. Enjoy every moment!
Stay safe and well my friend.
On my way to Alberta in Few days. Enjoy.
How awesome!! Maybe we’ll meet up on a trail and never know it 😉
What a beautiful place to spend some time. I love Alberta and hope to get back there again. Enjoy.
Alberta is a place you never go to only once if you can help it! დ
What a wonderful home from home … with added bears!
It is beary wonderful!! Cheers to you Margaret დ
What a lovely spot to decompress!
Yes indeed. Nature is the natural antidepressant დ
Beautiful cabin! And an amazing landscape! And as always, you proffer the most beautiful photographs! Cheers and a lovely day to you.
Such a lovely and most appreciated comment! Thank you & cheers my friend დ
You’re very welcome Cindy!
Perfect spot to spend some time, camera in one hand, bear spray in the other.
Smiling. Exactly right! Warning signs say to walk in groups of four and we are two. I guess grizzlies are good at arithmetic 😉
I think I’ve heard too many true bear stories. I’m terrified of grizzlies, beautiful as they are. Glad you are still on the right side of the math equation.
They are certainly not to be underestimated, inland griz’s especially so დ
Yes, they are predatory – not just interested in fishing.
Cozy and cute for sure!
Puts life in the proper perspective დ
What a delightful cozy cabin–and of course the setting is world-class!
Yes indeed. Life is good in Canada. Cheers to you Liz დ
Lovely cabin. It’s nice that the moose head looks like it is made of wood and not an actual dead animal.
Exactly my thinking! Moose heads belong on living moose დ
A really ‘get-away-from-it-all’ spot. How tranquil! Beautiful surroundings too. xx
It is lovely here. Cheers to you & stay well Joy დ
I would actually give up Wifi for a few days to stay in that cabin. I’d even go out of my way to make sure the bears know I’m their friend…by staying in my lane and leaving them alone!
We are in complete accord. I can’t believe I have signal now. It’s snowing. It pops on and off, usually off დ
Merci beaucoup mon Ami Tangie დ
What a fine and cosy cabin amidst that beautiful nature! Love it!
Stay safe, dear Cindy!
Thank you very much dear Martha. I hope you stay safe and well too my friend დ
That is a perfect cabin in the perfect setting! And I love the faux moose… my kind of trophy!
I agree wholeheartedly with you Dale. A good moose is a live moose! დ
Absolutely! And ya gotta admit it was rather cute 🙂
We have recently spent time in a tiny cabin in the middle of an indigenous forest – absolutely glorious.
Agreed. I love cabin life დ
Enjoy! Alberta is wonderful!
Yes it is & cheers to you! დ
The cabin looks great. Enjoy the vacation.
Thanks my friend & take good care დ
I love the little touches, especially the moose head (so much better than the real thing) and the snow shoe light.
I love all of this too. Creates such a fun and whimsical environment დ
That looks like a lovely cabin!
It is snug and comfy and it is snowing! დ
Grazie mille Sheree დ
Oh! I love your cabin, Cindy. Have a lovely relaxing time. Hugs on the wing.
Hugs back to you Teagan & cheers too დ
Gotta love Alberta … We toured there in August!
Glad you did. It is wonderful isn’t it! დ
A perfect little escape cabin Cindy, love the timber finish.
Yes. It is charming as all get out. The original cabin was built in 1949 დ
You say “cabin” and I think “basic necessities”, yours looks delightful! Have you seen bears nearby as the sign indicates?
Yes. I saw one last night დ
How utterly marvelous and I have always LOVED Canada… Lucky, lucky you! Enjoy it to the fullest! 💞
Thanks much! Canada does things right. Cheers to you დ
Looks perfect, Cindy. The ideal house in the woods. Say hello to the bears for me. 🙂 –Curt
I will give them a beary greeting from you Curt. I have now seen electrical bear fence for the first time in Canada with instructions to hike in fours…. Reminds me of Africa which you will remember! დ
The Klamath River in Oregon has campsites for people running the rapids and backpackers hiking along the river with food cache spaces surrounded by electric wire fences, Cindy, powered by batteries. They work. 🙂
I wandered the rainforest of West Africa with nothing but a dog to help me avoid poisonous snakes. The Liberians tended to eat anything that resembled meat. As for East Africa, another story. When I spent a moth driving through the big game parks in a beetle, I stayed in the car. 🙂 Nice kitty. I was stalked by a grizzly in Alaska. That was worrisome.
Sounds like incredible adventures and memories Curt! Love the Klamath area and have tramped all over it, had lots of adventures in Africa too. I took photos backwards while being chased off bay a baboon, and being charged by an elephant! Great memories, except the baboon! 😉
The Klamath area was a great place to have as a back yard, Cindy, except in smoke and fire season.
When I was driving a VW Bug through the National Parks of East Africa, Cindy, we heard about some people who had been traveling through the same area we were traveling through in a VW Bus the week before and were charged by a bull elephant who put a tusk through the back of their van as they rushed away. 🙂 We were charged by a rhino down in Ngoron.goro Crater. Fortunately we were in a landrover with a guide at the time. 🙂
Sounds awesome! 😉
Enjoy dear lady. Oh, and don’t suffer too much in that beautiful cabin, wildlife and experiences to go with it all 😂🤣❤️🙏🏽
Thanks Mark. Life is better in a cabin in the woods დ
Home sweet home, for the moment. Love it! Have fun!
Thanks Resa. It is beary nice here and snowing! დ
დდ snow… figures!
Looks idyllic… I’ve got a serious case of envy here! 😉
Come on over Eliza….. It’s snow though, so pack your woolies დ
It snowed?? oh wow! 😀
So beautiful the next day!
What a charming cabin. I hope you guys had a great time.
Thank you. Hope all is well with you დ
Trade ya lives for a few months…
I hear ya! It’s snowing now დ
Looks like a great place! Watch out for the bear 🙂
I am definitely watching out for them. Cheers to you & thanks! დ
It looks charming!
Cheers to you my friend. It was lovely დ
So cool… must be amazing out there!
It is so international! I hear more different languages in Alberta than I have heard anywhere else in the world. Word is getting out დ
What great fun and so beautiful.
I wish I could beam you over for tea Gigi დ
You won’t be able to resist photographing a bear
You know me Derrick. I have never been able to resist taking photos of bears! დ
I do 🙂
The cabin looks very cozy, along with the fantastic location. I could live there, at least for the warmer months!
Agreed. Winter might be a bit of a challenge, but beautiful I am sure დ
WOW, that looks really cosy. Have a great time!
We would love living there in the winter with lots and lots of snow outside.
Take care, keep well

The snow is already arriving. So beautiful when the sun comes out! Take good care my friend დ
Interesting and beautiful pics. One of your second homes.
I would love to have this as my second home! A bit far away though…. დ
That does look perfect! Love that the antlers are not real❤️
Agreed. Animal heads belong on living animal bodies დ
Lovely cabin, with LOTS of neighbors I am sure!
Love the neighbors! 😉
That cabin looks ever so cozy, Cindy! I’d love to spend some days there.
I would beam you over if I could….. დ
We would love to be in that little cabin in the woods!
It is a wonderful place for couples to destress დ
LOVE it!! Enjoy
Thanks much Sheila & hope all is well with you and your family დ
Cosy, cute and a wonderful getaway. Thank you for sharing Cindy 💐🙏💕
Thank you more for your kind appreciation Val & stay safe and well my friends დ
I agree. A cozy cabin is the best. Guess you have electricity?
Yes. We are electrified!!! 😉 I have stayed in cabins without electricity and enjoyed the experience. დ
Reblogged this on http://www.ginabriganti.com.
So grateful for your thoughtful kindness Gina. Thank you my friend and take good care დ
A little slice of heaven on earth. Great company too. I would love it too.
I wish I could beam you over for a cup of tea Marlene დ
Love the cabin 😍 Looks so warm and cosy as autumn 🍂 approaches. Hopefully the bears don’t make too close an approach! I would love to wake-up in that bedroom…but not sure I would want to be greeted by a bear outside the window in the morning!😅
I would be thrilled to see a bear oustide the window, as long as I am inside! დ
Yes, should think youbwould most definitely want to be behind a window to enjoy that view!!
What a wonderful retreat! Enjoy, Cindy!
Thank you Debbie & cheers to you დ
Oh so fun to have time to explore the woods and come “home” to this inviting cabin. Lovely post, Cindy.
Thanks my friend. We are enjoying every second. Cheers to you დ
I bet you can bearly stand it. 😁
What a cute little cabin. Hope you’re having a wonderful time in Alberta.
Thank you. It is stunning and we are! დ
Cheers, Cindy. Your cabin is inviting an oh so lovely.
So peaceful, even the bears take naps! 😉
Cozy cabin … now all you need is some early snow. ❄️❄️❄️
We got it! Were in quite a blow. Snow covered peaks the next morning. Beautiful! დ
So homey! I wish to stay even for a night in a place like that with family or friends!
Yes, we have been in different cabins for several weeks now, and are loving being in the woods დ
Is the cabin a solid log structure, or did they use log siding on the inside too? Cozy looking, none the less.
We stayed here before, but in an older, even more charming cabin, and always wanted to come back. The original cabin was built in the 1940’s. There was a recent, needed rennovation, so I don’t know the particulars. დ
Oh, I’d love to visit that cabin. The red chair by the little creek looks like my version of paradise. Enjoy!
Yes! So lovely and no people!!! 😉 დ
Your little cabin looks wonderfully cozy!
It was a snug little cabin in the big, big woods! დ
Just another pebble on the beach. Meaning me. Love the cabin. That’s not hard. But what a gift you are, ranging over so much territory, glorious photography – engaging, yet at times, casual too. Me, I’m more homebody (small adventures), but full appreciation for what you do. Happy to have found your trail.
So lovely to meet you Neil. Your poems are wonderful. Thank you for your very kind thoughts & words and take good care დ
Fantastic cabin. It must be very nice to spend vacation there. So cozy, I could feel it!
I love that you can feel the coziness Inese and I am happy that you appreciate this. Stay safe and well my friend დ
Just me wandering around. Lots & lots to see.
Smiling…. Thanks for stopping by! დ
