a note from nina
Thinking Spring, Still Winter

Right along Lake Superior the snow is melting back, but inland a short mile we’ve still got four feet. Head further in, you’ll find more snow.

Trails are still being groomed and conditions are great; see the trail report for details.

Spring means melting snow and rushing rivers. See the complete guide to waterfalls with descriptions, photos, types, directions and maps.

Here’s your guide to all your lodging choices  plus spring lodging specials.

April is quiet, so check out the calendar of events  for workshops, live music, stargazing, and northern lights.

Have fun and be kind,

– Nina
