Icy shore

It was bitterly cold last week, and large swaths of Flathead Lake froze over. The entirety of Woods Bay was covered in ice, and even far out in the middle of the lake it looked like things were freezing over (honestly I’m not sure how often the entire lake freezes– I suspect it’s quite rare). This afternoon Pepper and I went down to the state park to take a closer look. The shoreline was covered in shards of ice that had presumably washed ashore before things were completely solid.

It was a really cool thing to see. Imagine shattering sheets of glass and scattering the pieces for miles…

The weather was kind of moody as well, making for a great scene looking south along the icy water.
