Travel on ice starts, but tenative

Snowmobile travel on Lake Temagami has started, but warm temperatures and rain in the forcast keep conditions tentative.

Freeze-up came early on Saturday, December 18, but warm temperatures and snow have kept the ice less than two inches thick since.

As of today there is still no travel on the ice except by the Bear Island airboats.

"Another really bad freeze-up," Temagami First Nation airboat driver Bob Farr said. "We just didn't get those really cold days in a row."

Bridges at Wanapitei: old and new

Camp Wanapitei replaced the old footbridge (below) over Anima Nipissing River at Sandy Inlet, Lake Temagami.

As canoeist Rob Nelson said after he photographed the newly stained bridge, "I wasn't scared to paddle under this one!"
