One of the best ways to see Mother Nature in the summer or the fall in the Jackman region is via ATV. We have over 300 miles of trails to enjoy for the novice or the experienced.
If you do not have an ATV but wonder if it is right for you, you can rent one here in town. We now have 2 options: Jackman ATV at 207-668-9090 or Moose River ATV at 207-668-9014. Give them a call for details.
Above is a snapshot from today at noonish. I wish it was in action though so you can see the specks of the white stuff falling. I guess winter is not over
Fall is coming to an end and soon, we will not be able to see the wonderful sunsets reflecting off the water. Thought I would share this one with you.
Get ready for the snow song 🙂
We woke this morning to about an inch plus of snow on the ground. It will not be long until the winter season is upon us. SO get those sleds tuned up and pull out the winter ice fishing gear.
At 7:30 this morning, our Cam shows some blue skies and a gentle breeze. It is going to be a beautiful day.
You can always visit out webcam to see what the weather is doing but if you want to know what the temperatures are doing in town, the Northland now has a weather station at www.weatherlink.com/user/jackman/ .
Big Wood Lake has risen ❗ thanks to the tropical storm. Not even a week ago, the dock was sitting on the floor of the lake. Now it is floating so high, we may need to disconnect it.
Below is a picture taken on August 20th of our guests from England. The rock they are sitting on is now just peaking out of the water.
Although seeing Moose along the road or out on the trails is not uncommon in the area, to see Mom and her baby is a real treat. Keep your distance though when Babes are involved as these Moms get real protective.
SOME SURE SIGNS THAT SPRING HAS ARRIVED IN JACKMAN:
➡ The lake water has risen-our boat shack now sits in about 2 feet of water,
➡ I hear the tractor and Steve raking instead of the plow truck or snow blower noises and seeing him shoveling,
➡ The loons are calling and persistently,
➡ My Chives in the Herb Garden are sprouting as well as
➡ The Hostas are starting to poke out their heads,
➡ We saw a Pontoon Boat touring the lake today.
I am sure there are other signs of spring popping up around here but these are all I can think of right now. The sun is shining and a beautiful day so I want to be outside enjoying this.
We would like to wish you all a Happy May Day ❗
