A Walk in the Woods

Late Winter Ice Formations

As warmer temperatures and the beginning of spring is on the horizon, ice formations along the lake are going to change in the coming weeks. Ice islands, icicles, and ice canos will melt back into the lake. The shoreline, instead of being filled with landscapes of snow and ice, will instead host birds and animals migrating back in spring. Beach glass will be able to be found again. As you can see in the photos below, the rocks, fossils, and sand of the beach are beginning to peak through. The ice shelf has already receded greatly compared to earlier in winter. It has been a dramatic winter, and the views along the lakefront have been phenomenal. So take one last look until these beautiful ice-scapes return next winter.
