Spring Not Quite Here Yet Folks
What a difference a few weeks make - Picnic tables outside of Poplar Creek Guesthouse B&B take on April 6 and tables without snow taken today.
Still some snow in the woods and shaded spots along the trails including East end trailhead of the Banadad Ski Trail. Not great for skiing anymore but if you are a diehard you might want to start down the Banadad. We were up at the Banadad's westend yesterday and the snow was completely gone - this end of the trail likely received less snow then the trail's other end.
The lakes are still ice covered along the Gunflint although on many of the lakes the ice has retreated from the shoreline. Little Iron lake is the exception, it is now open along with most of the smaller ponds. Temperatures this past week were below freezing during the night and just in the 30s during the day.
