It's that time of year when its hard do much of anything outside. The lakes are still frozen solid, and the ski trails are closed. This has been the one of the quickest snow melts I've seen in a long time. I know a few people that will still get out and ski around the shorelines of the local lakes, but I have a hard time trusting the ice. Besides, it's starting to look wet along the shorelines. It is starting to get nice enough outside where I will have to quit going to the gym, and start running outside. Now just get the motivation to get on it! I took the camera along on a tour of the local lakes this afternoon to have a look, and start thinking about some paddling. I know a couple guys who have headed up to the Minnesota North Shore of Superior for some paddling this weekend. After checking the satellite photos of Superior it looks like the Apostles are still pretty iced in. Maybe I can get an early April trip to Superior in this year .. I tried last year but was pretty much iced in.
