Nice. What Lake are you on in the photos? I am trying to gauge how much snowcover is present for a hiking trip this weekend, and debating skis / snowshoes / etc. I have no idea where we will be going yet, but BWCA or Superior Hiking Trail are top on the list.
Sorry Presto, I'm kind of funny about giving out names of my secret spots! It's a smaller lake that is great for pike fishing, I pulled out a 38 incher 3 years ago, I only go to this lake in the winter.
It is a 4.5 mile hike in and we wore boots, but with a pair of skis you could cover a lot of ground with the current snow cover.
Call me a geek if you must, but in that picture of you it looks like you're holding on to a lightsaber!! Does that cut through the ice real easily? Seriously, though it looks like you're having a great time. Any trouble staying warm at night?
without the bad times: the good times wouldn't seem so good
