Mother Nature at work
As time went on this area gathered snow and ice, and more snow and ice. The massive power of the great gitche gumee further increased the size of the sandbar by bulldozing more and more sand and gravel to the blockade. The combination of ice and gravel over the winter months was nothing short of impressive work by mother nature.
In the weeks and months that followed the original post of the sandbar picture back in October of 2012, there were many of you that expressed concerns about how this would affect the 2013 spring run. As we expected Mother nature took care of herself just fine.
