Route & General Observations

We drove through Portage yesterday evening to see if there was any recent wet activity from that day. We’re pretty sure all the activity in these photos was from 4/10 – 4/11 during a rain event in our region.

We also saw the first Beluga’s of the season at the Twentymile bridge. Spring is officially here!
