Getting Here

If it was easy to get here, it wouldn't be Big Creek. An epic adventure from the get-go, the middle of nowhere is a pretty fitting way to put it. Luckily, we can provide you some direction, whether you drive or fly in.

SNOW STORM!!! I'm feeling my minority status when it comes to loving snow! Sure, I don't like driving in it, or the way a winter storm rearranges your dance card. But I will always go back to that feeling when I was a kid...snow days, sledding, skating, river walking, snow mobiling....The snow draped on the evergreens is an unmatched beauty. Even the cold wind....listening to it from the comfort of a warm blanket, a warm fire, with a hot mug in your hand- downright romantic! It's a gift of Mother Nature's. Take the day off. Shelter in place while I lay down a layer of white, blow it all around and work magic in the eco- system. Feel free to play in it, dig in it, move it around and then tomorrow you can resume your regularly scheduled life activities.As i watch the snow accumulate here in Wisconsin, I found some writings from the early Big Creek settlers this morning, and it never ceases to amaze me, their hardiness. A winter in Big Creek is on my bucket list! I'm also pondering the upcoming season, the old friends, the new faces, a few new menu items and since I'm staying in today, a few new songs to work on. So much to look forward to! And a quick Happy Birthday shout-out to Jim Davies, (president of the IAF)... A debt of gratBig Creek Lodge Idahowho love Big Creek Lodge Idaho ...💝 ... See MoreSee Less

But then it will finally overtake the sun's ability to melt it and the peaceful blanket of white will envelope her for her winter hibernation. May the aviators and locals keep an eye on her til she awakens again in spring! 💖( Thank you, Carrie Ellie, for taking the hike I would if I were there to get this spectacular photo!) ...
