Today's photos were sent in by one our regular visitors, Marianne Y, but they were actually snapped by her son, Jonny Young, who is a student at Michigan Tech. It seems Jonny and a group of his buddies set off last week in search of waterfalls and to see how the ice cover on the shores of Lake Superior is holding out. By the looks of these pictures, they were successful on their mission, except for the waterfall part, since the one pictured here today, was still pretty frozen at that point. In case you're wondering just where this might be, the only information I have is that they hiked in off M-26 and had to slide down a snow covered hill to get there...pretty much, off the beaten path, I'd say. I bet if this bunch went back today, only a week later, they'd find a lot more running water and less of an ice pack on the rocks and shore. The warm temperatures are melting things fast, so I'm guessing we're on the last leg of the snow/ice photos this week. To me, that's a GOOD thing! Bring on some Spring!

I LOVE the sound of Spring...all the water running...I could sleep really good listening to that.
