Matt in front of the cabin, Washburn, WI. June 2017.

My husband’s father Tom Johnson, bought 40 wild acres of land up near Lake Superior back in the late 1950s.

The land has been untouched except for clearing the smallest number of trees possible so this “chop wood -carry water,”cabin could be built in 1998 with his father and brother. The whole family is dedicated to preserving the natural beauty of this land as a refuge for animals and the family to enjoy in perpetuity.

The people who own land in this area are frequently under pressure of economic development and rising tax bills on their wild land.


Stay tuned for more on the details of this story. Many thanks for reading!
