Dec. 14

The road and parking lot have been plowed, including right around the loop (!).  On the lake there are areas of slush, and where machines have traveled  through the slush these areas have frozen and are rutted and rough then camouflaged by the fresh snow we have received.  The usual pillars are on both sides of the narrows and there are spruce markers into Copelands.  The main trail markers are not yet out.  Keep in mind there is lumber activity in the area.
