Large Lakes Freeze and Lots of Snow

The snow started on December 14 and it continued and continued, two days late there was twelve inches at Little Ollie Lake. Closer to Grand Marais from on top of Maple Hill to the Greenwood Road close to two feet of snow fell. This area is traditionally the Gunflint snow-belt. Further up the Gunflint near the end of the trail somewhere around six inches came down.

Currently at Poplar Creek Guesthouse B&B there is 19" to 20" inches of snow on the ground.

According to Lee Kerfoot at Gunflint Lodge, Gunflint Lake finally froze over sometime between December 11th and 12th. No word yet about Sag, one of the last lakes to freeze. Meanwhile the smaller lake include Poplar are now safe for winter trail.
