a note from nina
(when winter won’t leave spring alone)
Our snow piles are diminishing but still visible. Fingers crossed some of the lakes will break up in time for the opening of walleye fishing.
Melting snow and spring rains mean 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.
Have fun and be kind,
