3/23/07 – It is a gorgeous day today. High temperatures are in the mid-50s, the sun is shining and light breezes are stirring. The air is crystal clear, but it has just a hint of springy smell in it. Can you say spring fever?
Although slightly damp on top, the lake ice is still two feet thick and quite solid. This view is of the Sawbill campground from the middle of the lake. The white pines are starting to look a little greener.
As I approached the head of Sawbill Creek to take this picture, a large fish darted out of the creek mouth and disappeared under the ice. I assume it was a northern, as they will be spawning soon, but it was so fast, I can’t say for sure.
Every detail is visible under the crystal clear water near the creek. – Bill
