Marina Ice

On this first day of spring, the snow piles are slowly dwindling. We escaped the predicted 6-10" earlier this week with only a dusting, not even enough to shovel. The ice on Lake Superior changes day by day depending mostly on the wind speed and direction. I took a day last week to check out the ice at the Silver Bay Marina.

Naked branches 

Ice meets open water 

On the docks 

I like both the shape of these icicles and the reflection in the water 

The hill up to the lookout; the snow was still very deep and I sunk in past my knee more than once
