These pretty little Birdseye Primrose
are growing out of the rocks at the end of Hunter’s Point.
This is just about the calmest you will ever see Lake Superior!
Lake Superior is still low – You can walk from Hunter’s Point to Porter’s Island
What a gorgeous day! After a few inches of snow the other day, it’s acting like spring again.
Hunter’s Point has some amazing ice and snow sculptures along the shore.
You can still walk on the lake, the ice is thick. It is breaking up along the shore however.
It has been sunny and progressively warmer all week. Keep thinking Spring!
The ice has melted around the shoreline rocks
This is some cool ice where Mud Lake runs into Fanny Hooe
Some melting and re-freezing action around cedar pieces
The falls are hardly recognizable this time of year. All you can see now is alot of ice and the water running through here and there. In spite of the fact we got about 100 inches less snow this year, the water seems to be running pretty good. I’ll post another pic at the same place in a couple weeks.
One of the mushers on their way up Brockway Mountain
This was the 2nd Annual Copper Dog 150 Sled Dog challenge! This year’s race took mushers on an exciting backwoods tour of the Keweenaw racing from Calumet to Eagle Harbor to Copper Harbor and finally back home to Calumet.
The Red Squirrels don’t seem to mind the cold or the snow.
After rain and temps in the 40s, we finally got some great snow!
Ice and snow is starting to pile up on the Lake Superior shoreline
The light refraction created some nice colors in the ice.
Snow and sun welcome the new month
