Wordless Wednesday - Logs for the Fire

My parents live way up north in Minnesota, almost to Canada. They routinely have bears and moose in their yard. They can hear wolves howling not far away.

They heat their entire house with wood. It's not a little wood-burning stove in the living room. It's an industrial size wood furnace outside, away from the house. Someone has to add wood to the fire 2-3 times every day in winter.

These photos are of my daughter (when she was much younger) helping Grandpa haul some logs to the furnace.

She's using a Norwegian kick-sled to haul the logs.

That's a big log.

Now the house will be toasty and warm.

I'm linking up today with these Wordless & Wordful Wednesday blogs:

  4. That would be such a cool place to visit! And I love that kick sled your daughter is using - that giant log is impressive! :)
