My wife was having a "girls weekend away", so a good friend and I did the same. We went to the north shore to check out the ice conditions on Lake Superior. It was wonderful and frustrating all at the same time. Great conditions, but we missed the evening sunset on Sat night........ The place we plan to photograph the ice, we ended up not being able to get down on the ice. Oh, well... Sunday morning was cloudy, so we decided to head to the Sax-Zim Bog. We found only the Snowy owl. Overall, great time.
