The sun has been shining brightly and the clouds have been scarce. It’s been absolutely gorgeous outside and on Sunday the temperature reached 71 degrees on the Gunflint Trail. With temperatures predicted to be in the 60’s the next few days the ice will surely take a beating. The Seagull River is just beginning to open up to the south of our docks. If the weather keeps up like this we’ll have open water on area lakes in a couple of weeks and Saganaga won’t be too far behind.
