Late Fall at Cascade Report[caption id="attachment_118" align="aligncenter" width="300" caption="Young Bull and Cow Moose between 14 and Creek Chalet"][/caption] Well November is here and the nice fall weather continues with lots of sunny skis and temps in the 50’s! Since the big storm on October 26, the weather has been perfect. The storm on October 26th produced very strong winds of 45-50 mph with lots of rain. It knocked our power out at Midnight that evening and wasn’t restored until 4:30pm the following day. In Grand Marais, two boats that were still moored in the harbor were tossed up on shore like rag dolls. Pictured is a massive wave that smashed up against the lighthouse and break wall. Incredible! The storm produced an all-time low pressure reading for the state, even lower than the storm that sunk the Edmund Fitzgerald! You can imagine there was a lot of work cleaning up all the trees down around the resort!
Last weekend the North Star Ski Club visited the area for their big Annual Trail Clearing Weekend. Their help was even more important than ever this year with all the trees blown over on the ski trails. Thanks for all your effort and hard work North Stars, we really appreciate it! Matt and Michael Jr. finished up the rest of our trail system and saw 3 wolves run off the trail as their ATV’s approached on the trail between Cascade Lodge and Solbakken Resort!
In other wildlife news, two young moose (pictured) were spotted and photographed by a guest that stayed in Cabin 14 this fall one morning of their stay. They were drinking coffee and having breakfast, when they looked out their window and sure enough there was two moose standing right outside the cabin munching on vegetation. Wow, what a sight to wake up too!
