March is a great month on the Gunflint Trail. Luckily we get to keep most of our snow throughout the month so we can still enjoy all of the great winter activities with mild temperatures. While most parts of the state and country are beginning their thaw, we still have Winter around to enjoy for some time. The month of March has many names for its moon. It has been known as the Storm, Seed, Plow, Worm, Sap, and Whispering Wind Moon. The Algonquin refer to it as the Catching Fish Moon, Chippewa as the Snow Crust Moon, and the Arapaho as the Buffalo Dropping their Calves Moon. Whatever you want to refer to it as March will be a hanging on to winter moon for me.
