(Report by Jim)
Welcome to 2021! To start the year out right, we spent the better part of this morning mopping up some leaking water in the basement. That left a little time to go up to Lighthouse West Natural Area for a short hike. (Leelanau Conservancy, right off Cathead Bay Dr., right before the entrance to Leelanau State Park) I have a book of 40 locations (The Trails of M22, which covers Grand Traverse Conservancy, Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore, and Leelanau Conservancy), and this was only the 18th trail I’ve been able to check off. I’d suggest some boots with traction or slip on spikes for the slope down the lower trail to the lake.
The Snow Gauge contest ends tonight, so make sure you get your guess in!
