its a dog’s world…winter 2016-2017

No snakes…no ticks…no scorpions…no grasshoppers…just bears and wolves!

It’s a dog’s world on Prince of Wales Island, on Setter Lake in South Thorne!  Especially when it snows!

In the background of the picture above, the white tanks are propane used for drier and cooking stove. The red tank is deisel-1 used for heating (wood stove is our primary heat source), and the outbuilding is the cistern house. The cistern house contains our rain catchment captured water for household uses.
