Greetings and welcome!

Yesterday my travels took me around Caldron Falls Flowage and the east side of High Falls Flowage on Deer Lake Rd. I have pictures below.

The high temp that I saw yesterday was 47 degrees. It got really sloppy later in the day. I told a friend that the meltdown was so bad because we had not gone below freezing in two nights and had three warm days in a row. Last night we got into the low 20s and it froze a lot of stuff back up.

In my travels I saw quite a few trails that still held a lot of base. Some of it was slushy 3″ deep or more, but it was still there. There was plenty of mud too.

Today and tomorrow should be around 40, with Saturday and Sunday sunny and in the mid-40s. The good news is that we are expecting to get into the low 20s nightly to slow down the melt.

There is a little snow on the radar heading this way, unfortunately it isn’t the 6-12 that we would like to see. The radar shows the snow over us but the ground truth at the window only finds an overcast sky.

Our next best chance at snow comes early next week. We could see a couple of inches, but right now the GFS is showing it too far south to get big for us. There isn’t much to get excited about in the longer term.

I just got word that Iron Snowshoe has closed trails to all traffic south of HWY C.

Here are some pictures..

Have a good Thursday and thank you for visiting!
