The end of winter on Lake Superior - The wind sled and ice break up.
Even though Lake Superior is still 60% ice, spring is slowly showing up between Bayfield and Madeline Island. The wind sled that connects the Island to the mainland between ice road season and when the ferry runs, is now heard through out town as it'stwo 500hp GM motors driving twin propellers take off from the beach landing.
There is word the ferry is going to attempt to break through tomorrow. We are all ready for the longest winter ever to be done! (Photos by Hannah Stonehouse Hudson and Stormey Charette)
