Dad and I put the final closing touches at Central Lake and departed with Shadow in the 185 Cessna for Eagle lake on Friday September 23rd. The fall colors were really beginning to pop last week. Birch and poplar leaves quickly changed to vibrant yellow and oranges. Several days, flocks of geese and sandhill cranes continued south bound over head. We also woke up two mornings to decent frost and lake fog. The day before flying southbound to Eagle Lake I witnessed a cow and bull moose standing side by side south of Central Lake, the moose rut is another tell tale sign fall has arrived.

We have a long list of items for our next adventure up the winter highway. Fingers crossed for a some cold weather...well maybe just after I get a chance to catch a couple musky first.
Good luck on the water or in the woods this fall everyone!
