Warm, Windy and Dry

It’s been warm, windy and dry on the Gunflint Trail. Not only is the dry weather bad for the berries but it is also bad for the forest. No one wants to listen to the crunching sound of their feet hitting the dry ground.

The USFS is encouraging visitors to the Superior National Forest to use caution with campfires. We did receive under a half of an inch of rain but that wasn’t enough to make up for the previous dry spell. It will take a slow, soaking rain to saturate the soil again.

Until then, please use care with fire.
