On Sunday afternoon my pack complained about icy ski conditions so we went down to the lake to snowshoe and see how the shove ice looked.
|This is the north entry to the Portage ship canal.|
|A close-up of the left marker.|
|We took a tea break in here.|
|Actually it was quite nice out with no wind.|
|We kept hiking east.|
|I found an interesting stump along the shore.|
|The ice groaned as the water rose and fell.|
|Everything was so "cool" to see.|
|This is the start to an ice volcano.|
|I'll not get very close to the edge!|
|We could have brought a picnic along.|
|We head west and back towards the car.|
|We took the shore route.|
|Deer winter along the shore because snow is low here|
and they can dig up food.
Glad they don't do that on Arly's ski trails!
