Forest Lake Airport (25D)

A short trip to the Forest Lake Airport (25D) this morning. They paved paradise (the grass runway) and put up a lovely smooth parking lot (a paved runways 13/31). Its nice, but it was a nice grass runway too and will be greatly missed. Also got to see some ice houses still out on the lakes, but you can also see some open water, so spring is coming.
