Out in the middle of the forest

A gloomy, wet day for opening bow season here in the Northwoods. We are out in the middle of the forest scoping out a good place to put up a tree stand.

The dampness calls out every blood-thirsty mosquito within a mile radius. Of course, my can of repellent is at home.

Overnight it seems, the popples started dropping their yellowing leaves, and there is a thin layer covering the fire lanes.

Surrounded by beauty….

Chippewa Flowage Late Summer

Chippewa FlowageI am fortunate to be on the Chippewa Flowage – the natural shorelines offer such mesmerizing scenery.

Fall is rapidly approaching in the northland though; a few weeks ago I could see just a hint of drabness among the majestic trees bordering the waterways.  As the days shortened up since, the vibrant summer greens began fading, some to a dull green, others to non-descript ashen.  Overnight it seems, the crisp Tamarack needles turned lifeless yellow ochre.

I suspect that the full fall color array with hit us soon and I can’t wait!

Chippewa Flowage Bog August 21, 2016 & Updates

August 21st 2016 the bog moved up against the bridge on highway CC. It looks like access is blocked unless you have a very small boat.

August 22nd 2016 7:42 p.m. the bog is still in front of the bridge although we have been watching smaller boats going through

Monday, August 29, 2016 – the bog has not moved and is still blocking larger boat traffic at the bridge on Hwy CC by The Landing.  Small fishing boats and jet skiis are getting through, but I’ve heard that some of the boats trying to squeeze through have hit the rocks alongside the bridge foundation.  Be careful if you try it!  Storming again tonight with the wind pushing the bog up tight against the bridge……..

Chippewa Flowage water level 8-10-16

Tonight we boated over to The Landing to watch the last pow wow. The Chippewa Flowage is down almost 1 foot. According to the Xcel Energy website,  full pool is 1313 and as of today the water level is at 1312.01. We are starting to notice it because our dock is finally out of water and we are starting to see more of the sandy shorelines appearing.

The natural spring keeps the center of the bay from freezing all the way, which becomes a winter watering hole for deer.
