Lake Newell in March

We went to Lake Newell just outside Brooks, Alberta, Canada; in March 2005. This is a nice campground with a good size lake. Great lake for water sports. It is a bird sanctuary with a diverse array of species. It has hiking trails, a sand beach with concession and is 10 mins from Brooks. We have camped there several times when we had to stay close to home when Bear was on call. Brooks is just an hour away from Medicine Hat. We spent a week there on our honeymoon in July. My parents were up from Newfoundland and stayed with my sister on the resort side of the lake after the wedding. We had our boat then, and spent most of our time on the water.
I mentioned that we were there in March, because for those of us who like a little peace and quiet now and again, it was great. All of our summer pics of Newell are on the old computer so here are some in March.

That would be a plan Mike. We will have to work on that and meet somewhere in the middle.
Cheers

It actually wasn't that cold. I'm just wearing a hoodie, and we could sit outside fairly late before it got too cold. As for the dogs they use me as a heating pad. Their keeping me warm is usually a pleasant side effect, but when it's 95 -100 degrees, it's too hot.
