Maplelag 2011

We went to visit Maplelag Resort in Callaway, Minnesota last weekend and had a blast!

Not many pictures because we were too busy skiing!

When we weren't skiing, we were enjoying the sauna and hot tub, or eating the delicious food the lodge makes or just hanging out in the lodge reading a book.

This was probably the best vacation we have ever taken! It's only flaw was it was way too short.

We stayed in a cabin that used to be a Finnish Sauna from Northern Minnesota. Three beds and a wood-burning fireplace. Very cozy! All of the amenities were just a short jaunt away in the lodge.

The cross-country skiing was fantastic. All of the trails are groomed frequently with nice, deep tracks and the weather could not have been more perfect (though I never thought I'd say that about temperatures that perhaps reached a high of 3 F all weekend)
