Camp Van Vac
With our early spring weather, the ice left Burntside early early this year. Lis and George McCrea reported that it had disappeared by Saturday night, April 15.
Eagles and loons are already returning to the lakes of northern Minnesota, ready to start fishing. Last August's loon count on Burntside found 31 adults and 12 chicks in residence, down from 2004's numbers of 55 adults and 7 chicks. Photo courtesy of Thomas Eisenstadt
