This Week’s Mystery Spot! (March 1st, 2023)

It’s officially March!!! The beginning of spring is here! You wouldn’t know it right now up at the lake, but soon spring will arrive and slowly the ice and snow will start melting. This weeks mystery spot photo was taken last summer on a beautiful July afternoon. It was one of those days where you just want to get out on the water, turn the engine off and drift along looking at the shoreline and listening to the loons. There wasn’t much wind to speak of, so instead I decided to take a little hike along the shore. We are so fortunate to be able to work and live in such a gorgeous environment for the summer. As for last weeks Mystery Spot, that photo was taken last fall, just north of Napoleon River looking northeast towards the little narrows! Congratulations to Leo Lavoie and Mark O for getting it right! It was a bit tougher than normal, good job!
