Spring Paddling

Spring has been taking its sweet time up here on Lake Superior.  The last week has been nice and sunny with temperatures just above freezing (highs around 4 degrees).  Snow has been slow to melt so we could use something in the 15degree range for a couple of days.

This past Good Friday, a couple of the crew from NSA and friends decided to venture out on to the big lake.  There were a bunch of chunky icy bits floating out not far from shore and we were worried that they were going to blow in with the wind so we turned around and headed up river.  Here are some shots:

Sorry for the purple hue- shot was taken with the sun behind me.
