Lake Superior Ice

One of the greatest things about living near the largest fresh water lake in the world is seeing how it changes from day-to-day.  During spring and summer months it can be deep blue or if the winds are high, the clay soil churns up to make it look brown.  In the winter there can be days where the surface is covered with ice.  If the winds change, all of the ice pushes to shore to create open water.  After a number of very cold days a couple of weeks ago there was a shallow layer of ice.  Last week the winds pushed all of the ice into the shoreline to create a jagged surface resembling broken panes of glass.

Panes Of Ice

A number of people were out ice fishing just off the shore.  The journey out with their equipment was likely a little rough.

Bumpy Road Ahead

I wasn’t as adventurous as the ice fishermen or the couple that made their way out onto the ice.  I enjoyed the wonder of the ice from the safety of the shore.

Love On The Ice

The overcast afternoon wasn’t great for photos, but the icy rocks and shoreline still made it beautiful.
