Snowshoeing to Diabase Lake

Nice sunny day for a snowshoe today.  Snow has a good crust on it and it's easy going.  Went into Diabase Lake to take some pictures.

Out for hike

Took a walk up a forestry road that they just started to plow out just north of Sharon Lake west of Long Point Lake.  Loggers had done some cutting in there last year and are now opening up for the spring.  Further in there were some piles of wood that they hadn't moved out last year.  Hopefully they will take them this spring.

Sunny but still cold

Happy St. Patrick's day today for all that take part.  The weather is still dragging it's butt, cold nights and still lots of snow.  Last year a week ago or so we were out ATVing.  Mind you last year was unlike many years.  It will be quite awhile yet before the snow and ice goes.  Here's a pic of the homestead with quite a bit of snow still here and we haven't had our couple of spring storms yet.

More snow and freezing rain

Another 15 cm. of snow followed by freezing rain and then more snow has many of the trees bent over with some breaking.   The power went out on the west side of Gowganda Lake as a tree fell on the line. Click on pic for full view.

Out for my walk this morning

Left a little earlier this morning to take some pics of the fog just over the ice.

A first look at spring weather

 After a few clouds early this AM the sun finally came out the temperature rose and the melt started.  I felt like a groundhog today finally seeing my shadow.  Coming back from the dump and entering the two rock faces into Gowganda, I think we should put a gate up there.

Spear Lake Rd, today

The pictures this winter look all the same, hopefully there will be a break in the weather soon.  The only thing that changed is the depth of the snow.
