These photos were taken on the evening of March 14, 2009. The ice so thin it took less than a minute for an auger to rush through. Water was atop the ice, but so were many fishermen and women.

Winter is fading in the Upper Peninsula. We may have another storm or two. The thaw has certainly arrived, though. Warm enough to wear a light coat some days.

I have never understood the attraction to thin ice, or ice-fishing for that matter. I will wait for warmer temps and head out in a boat.

Trenary 16th Outhouse Classic 2009, All Ages, photo copyright Kim Nixon

On the last Saturday in February the Outhouse Classic comes to Trenary. It is such an event that even The Travel Channel was present filming for a segment on extreme races that will air some time this summer. I was sure to take shots of the Travel Channel filming. But more important was the splash of color in February helping us all to have a Mardi Gras spirit complete with beads, costume, and raucous fun. The weather helped with temps in the 20s and blue blue skies. I tell you people get fired up over their outhouses in this town!
