The blue of the lake in the second picture says it all. Kipawa blue. Canít wait to get back.

That's got to be Red Pine Chute...and I think he's not "on" the Chute, but close...

Right out front of the outflow from the chute about yds away.

I would think the road to Grindstone is still a week or so out snowmobiles will pack it down during the winter so last to go out.

@crackers42 you talking about windy lake road? It's still partly covered but the UTVs / ATVs have started using it.

Thats just past the bridge at Red pine chutes. That's mostly gone in mid June.

 Not my camp Rick. That's on the main road in. I'm a couple more km in. I took a drive to get some water near Booth lake. All the roads were snow free, and rivers swollen.

Hey Puckster, would you mind providing an explanation as to why you needed to drive to a place near Booth Lake to get water. Do your long term plans for your Kipawa home include drilling a well? Just wondering.

Hey, Jay. There's a small spring there where many local get their drinking water. Lake water pumped thru the house provides for washing and some cooking purposes. The spring water is for my coffee pot and drinking. Eventually a well make an appearance. Right now I have too many other major expenses to worry about. BTW the grouse are everywhere around here.

Looks like that's it for ice at this end of the lake. Been windy and warm all week.. Today a nasty north wind seems to have pushed all the surface ice down here. A few square yrds of surface ice is all thats left here.

So, that ponders the question, when is the ice OFFICIALLY out of Kipawa, and who is the winner?
