Appreciate the beauty of our lakes, no matter what the season

The lakes area endured a long, cold, gray spring that included snow. Did you take time to really look at our lakes and rivers this spring?

If so, you know they’re still beautiful, whether ice- and snow-covered or wide open and blue under a sun-filled sky. By now the ice is gone, open water fishing is well underway and soon our waters will be filled with people boating, skiing and tubing, and kayaking, canoeing and using standup paddleboards.

No matter what the season, our lakes and waters offer a wonderful escape to nature and beauty. We should all appreciate this and make time every day of the year to soak up that peaceful beauty.

Notice how the waters look different on a sunny day vs. a cloudy day; on a rainy day vs. a sunny day; on a windy day vs. a calm day. Watch the ice slowly form every fall into winter, and the magic as that ice slowly thins, turns black and eventually disappears every spring (some years in early spring, other years in later spring, as we well know!).

On these pages of our 2022 edition of Love of the Lakes magazine, we explore our beloved lakes through a variety of different stories. No matter what Mother Nature has in store for us today, we invite you to sit back and enjoy this 16th edition of Love of the Lakes.
