It's a Friday night about 10p.m. and as I look out the window of my cabin, there is a fog hovering above the frozen lake and the moon is very bright. The stars are starting to show their presence and the quietness is very soothing. Many times people ask how I can stand being alone out here in this wilderness setting and I answer, "How can I not?" I am free from the pollution of noise,lights,crime, and rudeness.
