The extreme heat made its way to the Northwoods and caused several storms for the 4th of July week. On Monday night, July 2nd, what appears to have been a tornado hit County K at Lost Canoe and White Sand Lake. The road was closed for 1/2 a day on Tuesday as crews cleaned up the trees. Thankfully power was only out for 4 hours during the night because there was more to come. On the 4th of July another system came through. Temperatures dropped 25 degrees in less than 5 minutes, there were funnel clouds seen over White Birch Lake, we lost 14 trees and the power for 26 hours! Many memories. Here are some pictures of County K.

A young black bear has enjoyed strolling along our hiking trail. My sister was excited to have the photo opportunity. Enjoy!
