New Trail Open in “Our Backyard”

Caribou Lake has many outdoor enthusiasts and I often see neighbors who regularly walk, jog, or bike with their families and pets down the well-used pavement on Sunny and Shady Lanes.

A Note From CLA President

We had an issue with the harvester where a rock cracked the hydraulic
tank and caused water to fill the tank. We patched the tank and flushed
the water out and were able to get several more days of use. However the
tank is taking on water again so we will be shutting down for the
season. I have contacted Equipment Rental, a company that does welding
and hydraulic work, to check out the machine, make necessary repairs,
flush and fill the hydraulic system, so we are ready for next season.
Most of the lake is in good shape, weed wise, but we would have liked to
make one more pass around the lake before the season ended, but with an
oil leak we don’t want to jeopardize the machine or the lake.
