It’s not even the end of March (ok, the end of March is tomorrow) and those of us lucky enough to reside in Door County, Wisconsin year-round are very pleased to see the waters of Lake Michigan and Green Bay almost free of ALL the ice! In addition, people have begun biking our backroads and green shoots are starting to struggle out of the ground – though barely. I guess now is the time to start planning your next trip to Ephraim’s High Point Inn!
