Standing tall

Here's another photo from last weekend's outing to Hunter's Point and Copper Harbor. This is the view across Copper Harbor, from the area right by Porter's Island. As you can see, the harbor is thoroughly frozen. In fact, apparently Lake Superior itself is frozen over -- for the first time in about 6 years, which accounts for our strange lack of snow lately.

On the way around the island, we followed some very interesting animal tracks. They looked like a big cat, so they were probably from a bobcat, looking for food. Our trail followed another sort of cat later on -- the elusive Arctic Cat, which had made some big tracks along the edge of the point. More on those later!
