Northshore Road Ice

It's that time of year again - the higher sun starts melting the snow and ice on south exposed rock faces.

1st Annual Shotski Festival

 We had our 1st Annual Shotski Festival on Saturday on Four Mile Bay of Trout Lake. Lots of curling, laughs and good times were had by all.

 Here the boys are right in to the winter vodka shotski - Skol!

Warm fire on the lake and lots of ice candles to light the way.

Ice Candles

The weather is perfect for making ice candles, so that's what I'm doing leading up to our first annual Shotski Festival on Trout Lake this coming Saturday. I'm hoping to have in excess of 25 of theses babies ready by then as well as a few Swedish candles.

I took this photo in the late 70s somewhere on the highway between Sturgeon Falls and Field. Note the moose head on the wall on the right and the Oblivion sign above the doorway. I wonder if it's still standing.

The moss on these trees on Sunny's and my bush trail is not on the north side of the trees - here the moss is on the south side of the trees.

Ice Candle

Here's one of a dozen ice candles I made recently. Hope they don't melt too much this weekend during our January thaw.
