March 2nd thru the 4th. It's that time of year again. Time for the Bayfield Winter Festival. Anybody want to jump into the lake? If not there is plenty of other activities to do. The link below has everything.
Despite the warm winter the ice on Chequamegon Bay is thick enough for the yearly event. While not ideal they are adding snow and making a XC track. The bay is shallow and does freeze quicker then the rest of the lake. The link is posted below for info.
The ferry boat is still running! You can argue climate change or climate cycles all day long but either way the ferry boats are still running. There is a Bayfield High School student that won a science fair project a few years ago on the subject. Below is the link from the story:
One more picture of the Sled Dog race at the finish line this past weekend.
And tonight there is a mini blizzard and a cold front coming down from Canada. So winter is not done yet. I doubt the ice road will come to be this year but they have put the marker Christmas trees on the route just in case.
