Water level on April 18, 2013, at Slabwood Bay and sand beach.  The footprint in the foreground is where the lake edge was last summer.
Click the picture and it will fill your screen.
We can see water again out our window.  Next will be waves again.  Looking straight west toward Mackinaw City, April 3, 2013.
Days of warm weather and East winds did this.

CLICK ON PHOTO TO MAKE HUGE
A cropped photo of MODIS imagery.  I uploaded the whole photo by accident.  This was the intended photo.
Note that if a line were drawn between Sand Bay and Pries, it would cross open water.
After the big thaw the ice has become weak and brittle.  It kind of reminds me of an egg shell, it seems strong until you break it.  The open water has invaded quite a way towards the West.  Note that Mackinac has no ice.
Click again to see it.
This invader is in Sec 17 Lot 6 at the shore.  The native good Phragmites are yellow and in the foreground and the left side of the colony of bad Eurasian Phragmites, Phragmites australis subspecies australis.

IT WILL COVER THE ENTIRE AREA IF NOT STOPPED.
This was taken through my picture window, Aug. 24, 2012.  Something I never thought I would see right in front of my place.  How rare can this be?  CLICK ON IT TO ENLARGE IT.  Those are ducks or seagulls farther out.
1/4/13-I wonder if this is the buck retrieved from 14 foot light?

Photo taken from Sand Bay on Bois Blanc.
Please click on it for full effect.
Very rare plant.
Found on Round Island today, May 12, 2012.
Imported topsoil probably brought this European invader.  It can be found on the west side of Pointe Aux Pins. Its a mustard with four tiny petals.  Near the base of the plant can be found white hairs.  Hoary means white haired.

You can see the driveway going on to Lot 92, entering on the north side after you go around the curve.

Last year I posted the yellow-rumped warbler.  This time it is a very common bird for BBI in the winter.  A tiny little thing with yellow hidden under the wings.
The South Channel remains open.  A vary quiet winter on Bois Blanc.  Very little snow makes it even more quiet.
The white line indicates the direction you need to take to gain access into the heart of the State Natural Area.  This is for those people who would like to hike into a wetland -
Nature Nuts!
 I added names to the 'unnamed ponds' so that people can describe where they have been, and others would know where they went.

A picture taken before the cabins were "digested" by nature.  My Grandmother, when young, slept in the cabins, just for fun and to say that she had done it.
This rose window was brought over from Cheboygan on the steamer Duluth in 1906.  It was the design of Eustace Ziegler and constructed in Detroit by the firm of Fredrick & Wolfrum.
