Spring comes later in the Loring-Restoule region. The ice huts are off the lake, but there are still some avid snowmobilers on the trails. 2 days ago we had a bit of a thaw, and snow got slushy. Last evening we had a flurry and temperatures dropped. One moment spring is in sight, and the next we are deposited right back into the thick of winter. We are gearing up for opening Pine Grove for the season...so much to do when winter releases its icy grip on the land. If you like to photograph wildlife, spring can be an amazing opportunity, while you may not have summers bold beauty, the wildlife viewing opportunities are exceptional. Be careful driving on Hwy 522 as the deer and moose are moving close to the highway to enjoy new growth and the leftover remnants of road salt.
