The tracks belong to a snowshoe hare! They are so named because of their very large hind feet that are lined with stiff hairs that act as a snowshoe, supporting their weight on the surface of the snow.
Winter is letting go of it's icy grip at Ludington's North Breakwater Lighthouse.. Thanks for sharing Michigan Nut Photography.. Have a great evening!

There were predictions posted yesterday for a significant Northern Lights display, and Aurora indicators showed that there was good potential for a decent show after it got dark last night. As it turned out, there was a glitch is the monitoring system that incorrectly reported space weather conditions resulting in incorrect readings and an erroneous forecast. I was not aware of it until later, and went out with my camera and a friend, but we managed to catch a brief show anyway, and it was a beautiful night to be out along Lake Superior even though it was quite cold.
*Whitney Portal Road UPDATE: The protective slurry has been placed over the damaged sections of the road where the rockslide occurred. The road is currently under the standard winter closure. *Horseshoe Meadows Road UPDATE: There has been a site survey preformed and a plan is currently being developed for site stabilization and repair. *Onion Valley Road UPDATE: Road crews are anticipating beginning work this week; however the extent of the road work is currently unknown. *South Lake and Sabrina Roads UPDATE: Once an official snow measurement has been determined, the Inyo County Road Dept will be able to assess when it is safe to attempt road cleanup and/or repair work. A big thank you to everyone who has been patient – this winter has brought historic amounts of snow to the Sierra and with that, the associated rockslide road damage. Please continue to be patient as road crews do their best to get these roads cleared and safe. We will keep you updated on any new info!
Relax, the weekend is almost here! ... See MoreSee Less

“Following My Leader” Photo by Mike Crowley We still have plenty of snow on the ground, and there is a lot of ice also. The only safe place to walk is on our trails, but I also wear Yak Tracks to keep me from slipping. I got this photo of albino Blue Eyes and her fawn from about 50 feet away using my 100-400mm lens zoomed in. I was standing in some brush along the trail and they weren't sure what I was. © Copyright 2017, Life in the Northwoods If you like my photos, please feel free to share them.
"A Break in the Clouds" It looked like there would be no pretty sunset last night, but just as I was packing my gear, the clouds broke rewarding me with beautiful sun kissed clouds.. Ludington, Michigan.. Thanks for sharing Michigan Nut Photography..

An update on the boardwalk. We've received a lot of questions about when the boardwalk will re-open. We realize how frustrating the wait has been. We love the boardwalk as well and want to get it fixed just as quickly as we can. Here's is why it wasn't fixed right after Hurricane Matthew: Juniper does not receive Federal tax dollars to improve things. Recreation Resource Management takes in the revenue we receive from you the customer and in turn takes a percentage of that revenue (based on our contract with the Forerst Service) and puts it back into repairs, additions (like the bear resistant food storage boxes etc.) for the rec area. Since the Hurricane wiped out the boardwalk at the end of the year our budget was pretty much spent so we had to wait until 2017. Us and the Forest Service were trying to come up with a better way of fixing the walkway for longevity but the costs were just too high. So now that we've come to a decision on what we're going to do we are now taking bids for the work. (Bids must be taken for any government project) In conclusion we are hoping to get it fixed in the next month or two. Again, we apologize for the inconvenience but please bare with us through this process. ... See MoreSee Less

Horseshoe Meadows Road Update from Inyo County Sheriff's Office and U.S. Forest Service - Inyo National Forest Substantial rain and snow from the atmospheric river events that took place in January and February of 2017 caused significant damage on Horseshoe Meadows Road. In one particular area, weather induced erosion has reduced the road to an unstable and unsafe single-lane. The Inyo County Road Department has inspected the road damage that can currently be accessed and is in the process of determining the scope of the project, including the time estimate involved in the required road repair. At this time repair work will involve stabilizing the roadbed, stabilizing the shoulder, and preventative measures that would reduce further erosion. Currently Horseshoe Meadows Road is under normal winter closure; however, it is important that the public is aware that this road is unsafe. As the project progresses more information will be released, including the projected opening of the road. Thank you for your patience.
Here we are starting up another great year. This weekend The Southern Vintage Campers Group will be camping with us. They will be in their vintage campers which will be fun to walk around and look at. Also we will have many families here enjoying spring break from the schools in the area.
Everyday we have people calling in making their reservations for the summer. We again will have many activities planned for this summer. The activities will be announced on facebook each month. Call and make your reservations now so that you don't miss out. ... See MoreSee Less
