Many of our guests are reporting seeing moose while paddling the Boundary Waters. One family came in from their trip and told us that they saw eight different moose, all from the same campsite. The best news is that we are getting sighting reports of cows with twin calves from different lakes! Twin calves are a sign that the area can support a larger moose population.

The first human visitors to show up this season were not interested in paddling, camping or staying in a cabin. However, they did manage to paddle around a couple of the islands out on Poplar Lake before they departed. They were working on a short film about Rockwood Lodge and they are probably the first people to ever fly a drone over Rockwood Bay. We hope that they got a great shot along our frontage and we now have a new story to pass along.
Our first cabin and bunkhouse guests are scheduled to arrive tomorrow. I plan on turning the water system on today. I still need to get the sign along the Trail painted and put back up so that they can find us.

This is the hardest time of the year to live up here in the Northland. The ice fishing season for Lake Trout is about to close. Almost nightly, the Minneapolis television stations show a piece on about people out jogging or about people out playing golf. We have already had a few calls and e-mails from people wanting to plan canoe trips in April. The outfitting equipment that we expect to need for this summer has already been ordered.
