May is the North’s most gleeful month. Almost overnight, the snow evaporates and all but the biggest lakes clear of ice. Fireweed erupts along the roadsides, porcupines and black bear cubs emerge, and new-budded aspens glow kelly-green. Best of all, daylight never ends. This is when you can paddle all day and then golf all night. When you can fish, camp and hike without ceasing. When the legendary Wildcat Café reopens, beckoning you to relax with a beer and a bison burger, watching the sun never set on Back Bay.
