The best ice in years

We had a great freeze last week. The lake is frozen to a perfect sheen, and you can go as far as you want. We haven't seen these conditions in years. Here are a few photos from the week-end with the family doing some skating in front of camp.

Ally is standing over the jug on parking lot reef. You can see all the rocks and boulders when you are on the ice, but the camera does not pick it up as well.

Here is a shot of camp that you may not get too see. We don't have a lot of snow right now, that's why we have these exceptional ice conditions.

The one thing about playing hockey on the lake is that if you miss a hard pass from the other player, you may have a long skate to retrieve the puck.
