Fall is in the air!

Sunday October 11th we had temps in the mid 80's on Pelican Lake. Made for a perfect day for removing the hazard buoys. Monday was a different story. High winds blew fall back into the northland. Tuesdays high was only 42° and with the wind blowing most of the fall colors have blown off the trees. The resort is all winterized and we are ready for the ooh so long winter months in northern Minnesota. We are taking reservations for the 2016 season, hour to hear from you soon.

Ice out

a beautiful morning on Pelican Lake. A few little patches of ice but for the most part Pelican Lake is ice free!

Pelican Lake almost ice free

These photos were taken at 7pm on 4/15/15 showing the ice conditions on the lake. With the south winds all day today it pushed all the remaining ice up along the north shore. What you see in these photos is the last of it in guessing and Pelican Lake should be ice free by Thursday April 16th. Once we get open for the season the wall of fame blog photos should start coming in on a regular basis.
