UP Cabin Building Pics

I spent a summer building nearly two dozen 'fishing' cabins in the UP of Michigan. This is somewhat of a rugged area; you cannot get to the sites without 4wd, there is no electricity (or gas, or anything else), so it's a 'little' rugged. Oh, and the average snowfall in this area is 300" per year. And there's bears and moose (actually, the moose are a LOT more of a problem in construction than bears).
