Sasquatch Myth Debunked?

Mysterious footprints have been discovered at the north end of Long Lake. Very large in size and seeming to have been made by a creature with very big feet and toes, they are rumored to have been made by Big Foot herself.

Others believe they are snowshoe tracks.

                           You can decide.

Meeting in the Middle of the Lake

Anne Pyle's family took these lovely photos.  They walked from the east & west shores to meet in the middle of the lake.  From this location, both shores were lost in the mist.

 The sun wins!  Fog has cleared.

Long Lake's Own Ice Road

Wikipedia says, "Ice roads (ice crossings, ice bridges) are frozen, human-made pathways on the surface of bays, rivers, lakes, or seas in polar regions. They link dry land, frozen waterways, portages and winter roads, and are usually remade each winter. Ice roads allow temporary transport to areas with no permanent road access."

Not to be outdone by the "Alaska Ice Road Truckers" TV show, Long Lake has an ice road, too!  Made by an unknown person, it is located along Chippewa Loop and north towards New Frontier.
