April at Loon Lake

Spring wants to start, but Winter won’t let go.

There is still snow in the woods, and ice on Loon Lake. Our road onto the Point is in good shape, with only a couple of soft spots.

There are a few spots of open water on the lake— mostly around springs, stream inlets, and docks at camps with bubblers. I did see a pair of Mallards on a patch of open water, and heard a goose honking, nearby. Down the road at Grass Pond, there is a good deal of open water. Deer, rabbits, squirrels and turkeys are all on the move. We had a new inch of snow overnight Friday, and the animal tracks were everywhere on Saturday.

Working on several indoor projects at camp. The weather is nice enough to set up the saw outside, under the early April Sun.

We fired up the outdoor pizza oven yesterday. For the first time this year, I was able to sit for a bit and look at the fire. it has been so cold the last few months that I have had to keep splitting wood for the oven, to keep myself warm. A nice change.

I feel like I am just waiting for the snow to melt, and the ice to go out. Could be waiting several more weeks…..
