"Trinity Lakes Wilderness Retreat"
"I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order." - John Burroughs
"Are those jet skis on Judd Lake driving you nuts? Or perhaps you just want to get away from the noise and confusion of Anchorage to see the Northern Lights as they were meant to be seen - in unpolluted air!
Fifty-six miles and a world away from Anchorage, this little gem sits on 5 acres of charming protected cove at Trinity Lakes. The hour-glass upper lake is 2 miles long, so getting in and out at max gross (or just a wee bit heavier) is a non-issue. Lower-time pilots have no worries here as there is seldom a crosswind. A nicely packed runway in the winter makes landing on skis a joy and not a chore.
The snug 12x20 cabin is stick-built, well insulated, with a warm tongue and groove interior. It sits high and dry on level ground and is in excellent repair. The kitchen includes a pristine propane range with a broiler and oven. Perfect for wilderness brownies! A nice cast iron stove heats the place to 80 degrees in about 20 minutes in the dead of winter. A 4 x12 foot covered deck accommodates two rocking chairs while a large, level social area out front houses the fire pit. Here you can watch the sun set across the lake while the loons sing out their mournful cries.
When it's time to retire, sleeping accommodations include a comfy double platform bed for snuggling with your mate. Meanwhile, a folding single bunk sits at the ready for your guest. It also doubles as a handy work bench or backwoods buffet table. When not in use, it folds tightly against the wall, becoming a convenient temporary shelf.
Out back, there is a 16x20 foot shed with drive-through barn doors at each end for the two snow machines. (Full disclosure: these have not been run for a while.) Other toys inside include a 12-foot skiff with a dependable 8-horse Suzuki outboard and one Weber charcoal grill. Sadly, the 17-foot freighter canoe got squashed in the last heavy snowfall a couple years back. But when towed behind the skiff, it is still quite handy for hauling your moose, bear, or unruly children.
A natural spring on the property provides clean, fresh water year-round. It also doubles as an excellent beer, wine, and soda chiller. The value of this feature cannot be understated. Of the five acres, about a quarter acre is covered with blueberry bushes, providing great pie filling and a tasty accent to your pancakes.
Modern conveniences include a newly-built, world-class outhouse for the warmer months, as well as a conveniently discreet chemical toilet in the cabin if it's too chilly outdoors for your delicate backside.
The cabin is fully rigged for propane to fuel the range and the lights which cast a warm, welcoming glow on the surrounding snow in the winter. A 45-pound propane bottle is included. It is typically enough to last a full year.
All buildings have metal roofs and all windows are fully shuttered to keep out any wandering bruins. While the bears have been scarce of late, the moose have not. The last moose taken was a nice bull that was called into the adjoining four-acre meadow and dropped 30 feet from the cabin. Why he was not dropped closer to airplane has been a source of contention ever since.
The lake is quiet and peaceful. Canoeing or kayaking with the swans, loons and beavers is a favorite pastime. Denali looms in the background while salmon spawn in the shallows after having fought their way up the mighty Talachulitna River. In the winter, snow shoeing, cross country skiing or snow machining provides high adventure. Did we mention the Northern Lights?
After you've spent a few days at your cabin at Trinity, returning to town seems an onerous proposition. Alas, you must go back, but you can rest assured that you will return renewed and refreshed by a wilderness retreat like no other."
