SNOWY TRAILBLAZERS – A Lake Superior State University outdoor recreation class didn’t let the season’s first snow get in the way of clearing a new trail on Oct. 23 through the woods southwest of LSSU’s Norris Center. Lake State’s physical plant is overseeing the project that may eventually include a footbridge and gazebo. The half-mile route — dubbed the Laker Trail — will offer hiking, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and outdoor classroom opportunities when it opens next year. Campus and area organizations can help with the effort by contacting manager of plant operations Steve Gregory at 906/635-2182. (LSSU/John Shibley)
