Tanner caught the Memorial Day biggest crappie of all time!!! (see below) Lily hooked a giant 10-pound something-or-other, but it snapped the line. (see Jones family in boat pic) We can only wonder. Perhaps it was a rainbow fairy fish called out by the magical songs of Evie. Aidan caught a massive northern pike and found it extremely slimy as he threw it back into the lake. Lily wins the prize for most exuberant return of a fish to water.

Since I took 1,525 photos over Memorial Day weekend, I'll try to split a few up by post. Here we have Mother Nature--a trillium on its way to turning pink and a loon stretching its wings. I also spotted a single yellow lady slipper in bloom by the shoreline, but nowhere else.
The next posts will show the extremely active wildlife at Eagle Lake. Animals that usually only surface on the weekends.

Whilst on my morning shroom hunt at the cabin today, I noticed this beautiful creature. The Googles told me that she's a Geastrum saccatum or Earthstar. Sarah and I were excited by the discovery, but I did find out that these fungi are pretty common in coniferous areas. We'll ask the Hawthorne resident mycologist for more information and get back to you with further details. Post by Courtney
