Ice shards

Two years ago at Bear Lake, the weather was unusually warm for March.  We took a drive around the lake and stopped on the east side to watch the sunset.  Most of the snow had melted, but we were fascinated by the piles of ice at the shoreline, like magnets pulling at my kids to explore.  We soon realized the mounds were unusual ice formations.  Every bit of ice broke apart into straw like shards, or needles about 3-4 inches long.  I had never seen anything like it.   And as you can image we couldn’t resist breaking them apart.   I’m assuming these were what was left from the ice sheets that freeze over the lake.
I hope you’re persuaded that even in the winter months, Bear Lake is worth exploring and discovering.
Get your boots on, and get out there!
