Another Windfall Christmas

Hiking out to a Christmas cabin is always a blast, and this year didn’t disappoint. This was the second time I’ve stayed at Windfall Lake Cabin on Christmas Eve. The hike out was absolutely beautiful.There was snow falling from the sky and on the ground but not enough to make the 3.1 mile hike hard at all. It’s a pretty easy hike, relatively flat, and took us a little over 2 hours (we had some drinking pit stops along the way). Of course we had to keep the bridge tradition alive and took shots of wine on every bridge we crossed on the way out. There are lots of bridges on that trail by the way. I tried to keep track but lost count around the 15 mark. Oh well, those bridges made the hike go by real fast and before we knew it we were at the beautiful Windfall Lake Cabin. If you follow me on Facebook, I posted all the photos I took under my albums, but I’ll just post a few of them below…

Ok, so maybe there were additional wine shots between some bridges… but isn’t that the best Christmas stocking flask EVER?!

Made it to the cabin! It sits right on Windfall Lake and has a dock and a couple canoes you can take out when the lake isn’t frozen.

Someone put a tree on the table, so naturally we had to add festive Christmas lights 🙂

So that’s it for Windfall. If you’ve never stayed in this cabin, I highly recommend it. It’s beautiful.
