The lone cabin from the lookout on Brockway Mtn was owned by a friend of mine.. I've been there a few times and it is absolutely unbelievable.. He unfortunately passed away and it is still in the family.. Hopefully you enjoyed your trip to the Yoop

We were there three days before you guys. I do not have a camera that takes pictures that good. The lighthouse off High Rock point is 5 miles out I believe. Did you notice the blue ice piled up that day?

m8man, we have always wondered about that cabin. It doesn't even seem like there is a road to the thing. It does look close to heaven on Earth.

We are going back next week and I'm really getting the itch with these pictures. The firetower in Pheonix even had me getting remorseful.
