Up North Cabin Socks


In Minnesota, it is not uncommon to hear the term Up North, which generally means anything north of the Twin cities metropolitan area. Minnesotans go “up north” in the summer as well as winter. The Boundary Waters canoe area is so popular that children and families return year after year to portage, canoe, hike and camp. The Land of 10,000 lakes is obviously know for spending time on, in or near the water.

Boot socks are necessary in many seasons as they are ideal for hiking as well as snow skiing. These cabin socks can be worn inside a hearty winter skier’s boots for Nordic or downhill skiing as well as in summer while hiking on the Gunflint Trail. Our worsted weight cabin socks served us well. I highly recommend them for any woodsy time at the cabin you have planned.
