We usually do not make an announcement every time we finish a new lake, but with Leech Lake I felt it was worth it because this map took an especially large amount of effort and time for us to complete. In fact, we started on this lake back in March of last year, but when we “finished” it we were not happy with the results (we had not figured out the best way to create a map for such a large lake yet). I decided to wait on it…and at the beginning of the New Year decided that Leech was going to be the first map we were going to officially create in 2012. After lots of trial and consideration, I decided to use the process that we used on our Lake Minnetonka map…and it worked great! I have found that these larger lakes take more work than the more standard sized lakes, but the end results look awesome due to the amazing details. For example, even though Leech Lake is huge (3rd largest in MN), you can still see the markers for the individual cabins on the lake on our map!
It always feels great when a new lake map is finished for the first time, but as you can imagine, having this lake done feels especially rewarding. I will post a couple photos of the map below and hope to get it into the Lakes Page and listed for sale very soon (along with a few other lakes that are waiting to get uploaded). If you wish to purchase a Leech Lake map in the meantime just email me and we will get you taken care of!
