Jason Sugimoto sent me these pictures from the Sioux Narrows area today, and a screen capture of a map to show where they were taken.
Since this one shows the power line, it might be from the more northerly location.
Bear in mind that the aerial or satellite images you see at Google Maps are not current; they’re file images. The forest is not that green yet.
I think this picture’s from the more southerly area.

*If you follow Lake of the Woods Ice Patrol primarily by email, you may miss some of the website’s extra features: comments, links, an archive of previous years, and the ability to scroll quickly to recent posts, or select them from a list. For all Ice Patrol has to offer, drop in on icepatrol.ca once in a while.
