Okay, here is an attempt at a spring picture! It is the best I can do at this point, as we still have several feet of snow on the ground. The other day we were out snowshoeing and the sun was high, very bright and very intense. The air temperature was just barely above 30 degrees but with the high sun and lack of wind it felt much warmer. That's got to be a sign of spring, right? Even High Falls on the Pigeon River, which is normally opening up by now, is still frozen and Grand Portage Bay on Lake Superior still has ice several feet thick in the entire bay! Our forecast is calling for sunny days and highs in the low to mid 40's over the next 4 or 5 days, so maybe we'll see our snow cover diminish and the rivers start opening up. For now, enjoy this picture of the sun and trees on a beautiful spring day!
