Ice on Burntside Lake Wednesday Morning, May 15, 2013 by Steve Piragis

Ice is hanging in on bigger lakes around the Boundary Waters.  Here are a couple images from this morning, Wednesday, at the landing on Van Vac Rd on Burntside Lake.  This is a deep lake and this is the widest part.  Bays are open and narrows but the big lakes indicated here are still covered with black ice.  The forecast calls for strong nw winds today after an unusually warm day with sw winds yesterday.  If you are planning a canoe trip for this week check in with us on your route for advise.  I'd expect ice out on all lakes by the weekend but this year's ice seems pretty tenacious.
