We spent the morning processing firewood and hiking to another campsite. Squirrel, chipmufnk, and snowshoe hare tracks dotted the fresh snow. We are spending the afternoon writing and listening to our tiny radio. We are saddened to hear about all of the senseless violence.
Tomorrow is supposed to be warmer with lighter winds. We are hoping to take a day trip and visit some new lakes south of Knife Lake. It will be interesting to see if any of the smaller lakes froze over in the recent cold snap.
