Yikes! Where did that wind come from? We were forced to take down the canopy. Not good if it rains.

Supposed to be someone else coming in today to share what is turning out to be a not so great day.

We head to Lake Placid tomorrow for a week of luxury. That outdoor hot tub is looking pretty good about now!

Sun is out and it's warmed up.

The winds have been sufficient enough to break up a lot of the ice.

Another camper from Scotia arrived earlier with tent and guide boat. Brave indeed Mile! A 3rd camper with a popup has just arrived to enjoy what was turned out to be a decent (alas windy) day.

We had some water get into the teardrop and soak some gear. Kate isn't so much a happy spring camper. The Airstream is looking pretty good at this point lol.

The heavy winds were really effective at clearing the ice on First Pond. It's totally open now.

The plan by the way, is that staff at the main booth will be managing firewood sales at the front gate.

The new firewood hut at the old dump station is just to store the firewood.

Amazing what 2 days of wind does to the ice.

Here is First Pond late Wed (close to half covered) and then on Friday ice free.
