The lake in solid state

After two weeks of frigid weather, the air temperatures returned to the 30s and we considered paddling on Lake Michigan, ice permitting.
Our enthusiasm exceeded our opportunities. Here are a few images from our trip to scout launching and landing sites:

The North Avenue beach house behind waves of ice and snow.


Snow fumaroles.

Curtains from ice drape over the North Avenue jetty.


A snow fence does its best to keep the ice out.


A lonely snowman guards the beach.


There was some open water, but no safe access to reach it.
