Green Heron Bed and Breakfast’s Christmas Cranberry Dip

Well yesterday we finally got that snow, that will probably stay…and you can feel the excitement in the air, all over town, and here too!

Ice Out!!

“Ice out!” is a big deal for those of us in the North Woods – and today is the day we can actually look out onto the lake and NOT see any ice left!  The definition of “Ice Out” is actually a seriously discussed topic up here… and our accepted definition is when you can […]

We’re Tapping Trees

Well it has indeed been a very cold winter! But the sun has been out for several days in a row now, the willows and dogwoods are standing out bright against the bare branches of the other trees on the roadsides and woods and there are even patches of grass here and there.  The nights […]

But when you’ve got your skiing, fishing, snowshoeing, or snowmobiling gear on who cares?  Here are a couple great sites for you to keep track of snow conditions for cross-county skiing and snowmobiling in Grand Rapids, and one for trail conditions across Minnesota.
