Yesterday, the camera showed mostly ice with the far shore open a bit. It's probably melting quickly but could also be blowing around a bit. Looking better though. I wonder what the float plane's requirements are, other than (or beyond) safety first.

I'm booked for late next week. I hope it's open by then.

It should be. Things are pretty open up here now.
