Last week, my family and I headed out to the true wild for an adventure. True wild = no cell reception. Okay okay, it was more than that! We went to Murtle Lake for the first time with our children.
The last time I went to Murtle Lake was before social media, it’s been that long. Murtle Lake is a stunning special place accessible only to those willing to tackle the grueling 2.5km portage then paddle for hours to designated camping spots along this majestic lake. There are no motors; there is no electricity or plumbing. You filter your water from the lake, pack out your garbage and carry flares for real, in case of emergency, not to mention bear spray. People are guests to Murtle’s wilderness and everyone who ventures there understands the respect Murtle deserves… It. Was. Awesome.
I’m already suffering from mountain-lake-withdrawal. Sigh. I am happy to share some of the sights of this amazing place – though I left my phone behind, I had my camera and couldn’t resist a few selfies – also not a “thing” last time I went. In fact, I didn’t have a digital camera last time I went! Times may have changed but Murtle has not.
My underlying motive for The Spirited Thrifter is tell a story. Most of the time, the story I share is about thrift shopping, thrifted outfits, style tips for the everyday woman and so on but frankly that’s only a small part of my story (as fashion ought to be). Hope you enjoyed reading a little about the rest of the story!
