Ardy McCradie of rural Grandin, N.D., came to Lower Rice Lake in Clearwater County this year for vacation, which was just for ricing.


"I've never seen anything like Monday in my whole life," she said. "Everyone was coming in with boatloads (of wild rice). I'm sure glad I was here."

McCradie's sons, Donald and Michael Roy of Naytahwaush, were both ricing Lower Rice Lake Monday and Tuesday.
