Last night cold with no wind the lake began to freeze over about 5:30PM and by AM was completely stiff as far as I could see. Light winds today and a bit of warming temperatures didn't change it.
Yesterday I got out to the snowshoe trail off of the Bouche cut road. I thought I would see how far I could get without getting too wet. As it worked out with the beaver dam broken a lot of the area I could get around. I could have went right into MacIntosh but cut back out to the road and came back to the highway past the big beaver pond .
