We have made some progress in creating a walking trail in behind the lodge. Susanne has been trying out her new snowshoes and today I even dusted off my antiques. Unfortunately the leather bindings were a little on the rotten side and I ended up just hoofing it in my boots. No problem, we made it up to the scenic lookout where you can catch a glimse of Vermilion Bay and Eagle Lake in the background. Plenty of deer tracks and the odd wolf track back in there. I think a couple of chairs back up on the “lookout” for summer visits would be a fine idea. I will work on that for 2009.
On behalf of the Boyes Group, I would like to pass on our sincere thanks for hosting the Muskie Madness Week and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at VBL and had a great time!! This was our 7th year on Eagle Lake and we have stayed at a few other lodges but VBL takes the cake hands down! You can definitely count us in for next year. I’m happy to see you post some of my pics, they turned out well. Thanks again Gord for a wonderful week of fishing and your stellar hospitality, you run a first class operation, we look forward to seeing you next year!
