Mount Gushmore

It hasn’t been a bit warmer over in Boyne City than it has here, but they are an intrepid bunch.  Where there is intrepidity, there is Babs.  She brought you back a present:  the ice fountain from the Boyne City Park.   Yes, the skating rink beyond is Lake Charlevoix.  Yes, it is frozen, but not in a reliable manner, so stay off it.

I’m sorry. Do I sound grumpy? I do. I am. Here’s a cheerful thought. The ice fountain has created an interesting sculpture. I think it looks a little bit like Mount Rushmore. Sort of.  Except the face is of Old Man Winter himself.
