The Soo Locks open today and a new shipping season begins. With the exception of the bays, Lake Superior is open for business and ice free. Something that is Awe inspiring to me are the daily satellite shots of the lake. Just incredible shots when the clouds allow a clear view. You can imagine the places you have been from the air. Chequamegon Bay near Ashland is still frozen pretty solid. We were watching people still driving on it last weekend. They even race on the ice during the winters. Ice fishing is very popular on the bay there.
