April 27

Lots of new pics today, more from Gary, and some ground bound shots from evil Clay from his trip to the landing today overland.  As Clay has reported as can be seen from the  Garys aerial shots and Clays Photos, south lake is mostly clear,  there is still some ice on south lake at the south end.  As of 6 pm this evening we have ice on the north side of the narrows which is blowing in with the North east winds.  There is also still a fairly large patch attached to the south side of Memorial island.  Bradleys bay is open and Copelands bay has opened.  Once again today,  very good progress.  Expectations are definetly high for the weekend.
