Signs of Things To Come!
I decided to go snowshoeing today out to a point of land I often paddle past in open water season. It was a glorious, warm, sunny day and walking along in the woods there was a definite spring-like feel to the air.
Once down off the cliffs at the point, I walked out onto the lake ice and there it was, the best sign of things to come I've seen yet. The sunlight being reflected off the cliffs was melting the snow on top of the ice creating shallow pools of water. Not enough to paddle in mind you, but where there's a drop, there's a gush, as they say. It won't be that long and I'll be paddling on home waters once again. I can hardly wait!
