I saw this old cabin in the woods in the northwestern Lower Peninsula. It looks as if it has been abandoned for a long time as the trees are growing around and through it. It’s not a big deal for me to hop into my Jeep and drive a few hundred miles exploring one of the state’s peninsulas.
I imagine back when this cabin was built and before the automobile, it was rare for a Michigander to travel a few miles from their home. Being isolated is something strange to us but for people in northern Michigan over a century ago it was just life as they knew it. There was no such thing as cabin fever back then. They were probably happy to have a cabin to go home to.
P.S. There are times I would like to just live in the middle of the woods with nobody around, but I could not go for long without access to the internet.
P.P.S I took this pic from the road, I do not trespass. Even though it looks abandoned, it is still on someone’s property.
