April Showers Are Melting the Snow into Waterfalls and Lakes!!

The sun is shining a little bit brighter and the days seem a refreshingly longer with the fresh smell of spring in the air! We are beginning to see the start of new life in the Northwoods as the snow is melting turning the grass green again and the lakes crisp and blue! The dull grey of the winter is almost nowhere to be seen! Which means it’s time to start switching out your gear for this fresh new season and start planning those summer trips you have been dreaming about during those long winter months!

If you haven’t already, now is the time to make your plan on how to catch “THE BIG ONE”! And if you’re looking to enjoy those peaceful summer nights on the beach cooking up some of the finest pan-fish, you needn’t look much further than Deerskin Lake or either of the Twin Lakes. The Chain of Lakes has any fish you’re looking for and some of the best record fish as well! Watching for those giant Muskies or Northern Pikes? Then you have to visit Duck Lake and Yellow Birch on the Chain of Lakes in Eagle River! Visit Here for more information!

Maybe if you’re not quite as eager to get out on the lake fishing but would love to see the stunning waterfalls that have opened up and are bursting with fresh new water, then this the perfect waterfall hike for you! These five waterfalls are close enough together that they make a perfect day trip to enjoy this warmer weather! Visiting the National Black River Scenic Byway is a great way to get kids out in nature after being cooped up all winter! And it won’t only be the kids who are enjoying  having all that fresh air to breath in either! This Byway includes the Great Conglomerate Falls, Potawatomi, George, Sandstone, and Rainbow Falls. What makes this path so fun to explore are the signs along the path that explain the conglomerate rock formations too! This is one of natures beauties that has something so special to offer in every season! Find more information and directions to these falls near Bessemer HERE!!

So whether you decide to visit Wisconsin lakes or go up to the UP and hunt for waterfalls, you will have a full summer ahead of you packed with adventure and beauty as you search for waterfalls and enjoy the peaceful lakes around you!
