One of the beauties of living in the woods is all the wildlife and critters. Every year is different on what is more common, and the unusual sightings. I've paid more attention to birds than anything, keeping an eye out for something unusual and not so common. Hardly a birder but do appreciate the flying friends. We've had bear visit from time to time but not so much recently. I've seen tracks not to far from the house and most recent bear sighting was north across the gravel road, Goat Ranch road. This spring we had a neighbor mountain biking on the Twin Lakes loop and he reported seeing a mama bear and two cubs. A week later I saw a nice full imprinted track on a soft spot of the trail that dried up nicely to a petrified liking.
I've yet to meet another rider back here and the signs above maybe scare a few folks away but a look at the MN DNR website confirms use.
First pontoon ride of the year. Dip in the lake most refreshing. Nice outing, gorgeous evening.
