It's 3:30am and too dark to see the lake for an update on the melting ice. We're up early to catch a 6am flight that will take us to Habana, Cuba, for 10 days. Here is another photo taken from the parking garage looking towards North Bay down Fisher Street.

This photo of the lake ice was taken this morning, 24 hours after yesterday's photo. The ice is finally moving. It's moved in closer to shore, suggesting open water on the other side, and there is a gap that has opened up across the lake which will surely help with the breakdown of the ice as it moves and shifts with the wind and currents.

The Jack Pine Ski Hill taken from the same parking garage as the photo from yesterday. This is also the site of the North Bay frisbee golf course. It's located on the upper half of the ski hill, and it provides many great holes with vistas over the city and Lake Nipissing.

The 5 floor parking garage at the Northgate Mall in North Bay offers some views of the city not normally seen. This is a look westward down Hammond Street, a little industrial retail street, towards Lake Nipissing in the distance. If you look hard or squint, you can see the Manitou Islands on Lake Nipissing in the distance.

This is Four Mile Creek as it runs underneath Highway 63; the highway runs northeast from North Bay to Temiskaming, Quebec, and the creek flows down from Four Mile Lake on top of the escarpment in North Bay to Four Mile Bay of Trout Lake. They, whoever "they" are, sure were original back when they were naming the local waters.
This is Four Mile Creek as it empties into Four Mile Bay. Not much open water at the mouth yet, but enough to keep the Canada Geese and an occasional Blue Heron happy until there is more melting.
