Ice Skating on a Frozen Tarn

29 10 2012



With no fresh snow and colder than usual temps, it’s made for ideal ice skating conditions. Sunday, I got invited to go with a group on a hike to ice skate on a frozen ice tarn in Eagle River. I’ve been so appreciating this 10+ day stretch of sunny, clear weather! But, can’t wait for the snow in the forecast at the same time…..

I love checking out all the interesting designs frozen in the lake.

Our view from the tarn. The warm sun on the mountains reflect some pink/orangish hues onto the lake, with some skaters in the background.

A crystal clear piece of ice sitting on top of the frozen tarn.

Dan skating past some older blade marks frozen in the ice.
