A look around the campground

4/12/2019 – Kit, Huckleberry and I went for a walk around the campground yesterday before this late spring storm rolled through and dropped five inches of fresh snow. While there are patches of bare ground cropping up, 12 – 24 inches of snow cover predominates. The crusty surface is strong enough to hold an adult making traversing the woods a joy. -Dan

Our walk began outside the screen porch where the hefty load of snow recently slid off.
The snow has finally melted off of the Sawbill Trail, but the high banks continue to block access to the lake and the campground.
Kit at the entrance to campsite 37 – that sign is about 3 feet tall.
Picnic tables not quite ready yet.
Patches of bare ground showing in the ditches.
Stairs leading from campground down to the lake path.
Large patch of ground in a cedar grove along the lake path.
The lake is still firmly locked up with over 2 feet of ice. On this day it was frozen smooth and slick with patches of drifting snow. It prompted me to go for an ice skate (unfortunately no photos of skating).
