Sign of Spring #3 – Open water on the Horizon!

We were up on top of the rock hill behind the Agawa Rock Pictographs on April 5. Off on the horizon, past Montreal Island, we could see a dark band along the horizon that could only mean that there was open water beyond the snow-covered ice along the shore of the park. IMG_1465

Earlier this winter, it was reported that over 90% of the surface area of Lake Superior was frozen. The satellite image of April 5 shows that the lake is quickly becoming ice-free. You can see that there is open water west of Montreal Island.Ice Montreal Isl jpegApril 5
