Thanks to Geno Miller for letting me camp on his lawn this afternoon to catch a few shots of his view. The ice in the water creates streaks that his Dad used to call “oil slicks”. Well, 10 degrees with a 25mph wind made for some chilly below-zero-windchill shots on the breakwall, but I’m glad I ventured out because I would not have seen the weird circular ice ball patterns. I recommend NOBODY venture out on the breakwall or the ice mountains due to the danger of falling through. I wore ice cleats on the breakwall and I’ve been on it enough to know where to step. Just hang out on shore.
Earlier, we were visited by a local tree. Probably a friend of the previous one that tried to get in. This one failed to get in as well, but it did scare the tar out of me.
