Last ice on Torch Lake

Posted on March 15, 2010


Early in the week the ice on Torch Lake shattered into tinkling shards over at the Day Park.  Babs Young and Chris Szejbach were there, capturing a swirl of jade here . . .   

. . . glints of blood rubies, crystals, amethysts, tumbling in the sunlight, then vanishing.

At Eastport, Katherine writes, The ice wasn’t gone from the north end of the lake for awhile after it was gone from everywhere else.  This was taken on Friday with the footprints of the last ice fishermen to pull their shanties off the lake. It’s soggy and translucent and unstable looking but still beautiful.
