Building A Cabin In the Heart of Winter

For Backcast author Lou Ureneck, the notion of having his new cabin ready for the beginning of trout season is reason enough to don the flannels and boots and head into the Maine winter with hammer in hand. “The light is bright and clear as a polished lens, the air is a tonic touched by the scent of balsam, and the snow, falling from the boughs of shaken fir trees, glitters like tiny crystals thrown in celebration. I love the way the snow, caught like a spinnaker in the wind, unlocks the colors of the white winter light, creating micro-bursts of red and blue.” In The New York Times.
