Changing Seasons

We seem to have entered the "no skiing" and "no kayaking" phase of the year with the quickly melting snow, but the lakes are still quite frozen. We did some skiing on Monday night, and the sure sign of Spring is the discussions on the ski trails, were all about kayaking. I'm ready for the change. Ron S and I did an early Apostle trip last year during the first week in April, but with the ice conditions this year, we may go up a week or so later. Early trips to Superior require some careful planning, and an close watch on the weather. A fun trip can get ugly in a hurry. Dave mentioned some "ice flow paddling" ... could be interesting! I can't wait either!
Note: After checking last years posts, it looks like Ron and I did the first Apostle weekend over the third weekend in April.
