Snow tracks in the woods and on the lake

IMG_1092

The warming February sun has been unable to stay ahead of daily bursts of lake effect snow.  Conditions for cross-country skiing have been excellent both on the edges of the Bluecircle and at the nearby Sarett Nature Center.  Although most of the Center trails are less than a mile long they loop together through a pine stand, several meadows, and above the Paw Paw River east of Coloma.  Showshoe trails are separate from the groomed ski trails.

Paw Paw Lake is used by a few skiers, often taking advantage of snowmobile tracks to provide a path through the drifts.  Today’s changing weather featured a fleeting “cloud rainbow” probably produced by the icy winds aloft.DSC00754
