First Snow at Teal Lake
Yesterday morning we woke up to a beautiful world of white! It was the first measurable snowfall of the season near the Lake Superior shoreline in Grand Portage. We had an inch or two of snow fall near the lake, with 3 to 4 inches or so further inland. I stopped a few places on my way to work to make some pictures of the fresh snow, including this Highway 61 road-side stop that gives a view of Teal Lake just a few miles south of the Canadian border. I don't recall ever seeing so much snow blanketing the trees while the lake was still a beautiful blue with no ice yet formed on its surface. Most of this snow has already melted but hopefully we will have more soon!
