Mountain Cabin – Winter

Dry heat, drying wool, and some kind of wood – cedar to keep the moths away, or the smell of a burning fire. If you’re lucky, there’s a bit of mulled wine or spiced cider from the kitchen. The door opens and the fresh cold snow smell blasts in for a moment, and then the smoke from the fire’s blowback takes precedence. There’s a tiny bit of mildew underneath, but you only notice it when you’re getting ready for bed in the upstairs bedroom.

    Yeah. I love that smell, since it’s like a little bit of the vacation coming home with you.
