I think it was 2013 when RH was still iced over well into May. My son and I had taken the first public Ranger trip of the season the year before and they were still breaking ice on that date the following year.
Think this year will be the same.
It sure looks like you're going to be right.

Re: found in the Superior Municipal Forest

Wow. Had to go look up where that is. Can't believe how close that is to such a large population center.

Re: Indiana Dunes Lakeshore now a National Park

So can I still check it off the list as a National Park visited if it wasn't a park all the times I visited?

Better safe than sorry, but I can't imagine anyone would mess them.

Re: Isle Royale Families and Friends Association

I didn't try that, but I will.

I had previously gone to their website and found 2 board members with email addresses.

Thanks again.

Does anyone here have a connection to this organization? I've attempted to contact them about Amazon Smile donations, but haven't gotten a response.

Re: Government Shutdown

That may be the case again, Capt Don. Rolf said the wolf moose study has been shut down, not because of finding, but because the NPS isn't allowing anyone to access to the park.

Re: Better to visit in early May, or late August

IN 2013 or 2014, the second week of May saw everything still frozen and they couldn't get a boat into either harbor. MikeT has a trip report on here within the last five years where they were "snowed in" on a mid may trip. If vacation time is at a premium, I'd vote Late August. I've been in late May...

Re: Reservation forms

I wouldn't worry too much about it right now. Even if the form was available, no one would be there to process it. Probably why it's been deactivated.
