Weekend Cabin

One of our favorites, Steve Casimiro’s Adventure Journal, has a feature called Weekend Cabin, where, yes, you guessed it, he chronicles pictures and stories of people’s backwoods getaways. AJ explains it like this: 

Weekend Cabin isn’t necessarily about the weekend, or cabins. It’s about the longing for a sense of place, for shelter set in a landscape…for something that speaks to refuge and distance from the everyday. Nostalgic and wistful, it’s about how people create structure in ways to consider the earth and sky and their place in them. It’s not concerned with ownership or real estate, but what people build to fulfill their dreams of escape. The very time-shortened notion of “weekend” reminds that it’s a temporary respite.

    Don’t we all dream of a weekend cabin to escape in? I want to take it one step further. Live in the cabin permanently!
