9.1 °C; Cloudy Checked the trail cams and walked to the Onion cut. Was amazed at how much thicker vegetation has gotten atop the railroad grade past my property. In the swamp, Caltha palustris everywhere, nice dots of yellow on this drab day.

Onion to Sioux River 6:41 AM; Washburn, WI
7.6 °C; Cloudy No way to walk on the wet sand today, surf from a light easterly wind had waves breaking and to preserve dry feet, I had to walk farther inland. Not many birds today and no people. We had the beach to ourselves. Walked back on the RR grade between Friendly Valley and Bayview Park, the DNR or Bayview made the trail passable. First time that I saw this done. Except for a few wet spots, it's going to be an easy walk or MTB ride.
