Ice off was May 5th this year. It went very quickly that week. The season started out with the Nimpo to Anahim Lake Canoe race, May 13th, along the Dean River, complete with several portages and icy cold water! The challenge was won by Richard and Leah Simon, the owners of the Nimpo Lake General Store. There was a Fishing Derby over the May Long weekend, which was well attended and followed by a dance at the community hall. Our long-time, early bird guest, Helmut, is here again fly fishing in his favorite spot. We are busy finishing up renovations on the Hilltop cabin, which will be done by June 1st. When it is done I will post the photos here. We are also having the front yard (the hill in front of the main building) landscaped. There is a machine out there now, with a talented operator, doing wonders moving around large boulders and soil. We are widening the turn around by the Pioneer cabin and boat launch, creating rock gardens and raised beds, and a fire pit area.
