With warm weather forecast this week, it probably will reopen again. The little bit of snow that fell helped the ice along, as it made a thin layer of slush on the surface.
I saw nice healthy gray squirrel hopping along the ice, taking advantage of a fast and direct route, and I also found fox tracks crossing over the thin ice in a marsh.
Brave animals, these first pioneers out on the ice.
There wasn't much snow - less than an inch - but it set a pretty picture around the lake, and and did allow looking for tracks to see what's been visiting the lake.
The diet of the moose has changed from the water-loaded diet of aquatic vegetation to a much drier diet of land based plants, as clearly seen in the individual pellets.
