Shelby and Daniel returned to Tuscarora in the snow flurries today. We’re loving the cold wetness–it is beginning to feel like the kind of weather that would make it almost impossible to start a little campfire for dinner.

The unofficial word is that they hope to lift all evacuation restrictions and all entry point closures on the Gunflint Trail (with the exception of Magnetic Lake and Larch Creek) on Tuesday May 22nd. Of course, all depends upon containment and safety, but return to normalcy is in sight.
