With the extra time on my hands this spring I thought I would give another stab at writing on the Chik-Wauk blog.
There is still plenty of snow on the ground and the lakes are still covered in ice. If you visit the Chik-Wauk website you will see on the very bottom of the home page the loon cam photo. This photo is updated every 5 minutes so you can see exactly what is happening in Chik-Wauk bay on Saganaga Lake from the warmth of your own home.
To the left of the loon cam there is even the current weather by Weather Underground.
It is very common to have different weather patterns along the Gunflint Trail.
These photos below were taken on the very same day. It was a gorgeous fall day up at the end of the Gunflint Trail but just a short 10 mile drive down the Gunflint Trail was snow and slush.
I decided to keep the trail camera up at Chik-Wauk here are some of the animals that roam the grounds all winter long.
It will be nice to see the grounds of Chik-Wauk pop with the wildflowers and hear the different birds that migrate through but until then I will enjoy what I see today.
