Lake Superior is free of ice but the bays are still frozen. Click on the map and you can see Chequamegon Bay is still solid and people were still driving on it last weekend. The Soo Locks are open for the new shipping season today. Spring is here! The Madeline Island ferry is plowing thru the ice back and forth to Madeline Island. A coast Guard ice breaker was in the channel last Friday cutting a path. The lack of postings recently was due to me wandering around the Lake Superior Region. A ski trip to the U.P and a small trip up the Minnesota coast. Spring break is a wonderful time to start the travel season. Winter is over and soon it will be Bayfield in Bloom time again.
