First Frost at Little Ollie Lake

Last night the eastern end of Poplar Lake on Little Ollie Lake received this fall’s first frost. The temperature at Poplar Creek Guesthouse B&B early this morning was 28 degrees. This is not to say that frost has not occurred previously in other areas of the Gunflint Trail. Two weeks ago inland from the south shore of Poplar Lake a temperature of 30 degrees was recorded.

Meanwhile along the Gunflint the fall colors are now reaching their peak – the moose maples and pin-cherry trees are bright red and orange and the birch and aspen yellow. It quite beautiful!
