Wild Ride on Deer Lake to Beat a Storm!!


Pretty View in Spring on Deer Lake


Sunset turns Deer Lake into Red Wine


In the morning of November 21, the entire northern bay is frozen (and other protected areas), but stiff winds from the south have it broken up by noon.

In the photo above you can see:

*ice (with sunlight reflecting) in the upper left;

*there is open wavey water out to the right;

*the middle-foreground (darker area) has broken ice swirling;

*near shore (below the trees) there is a layer of compressed ice-cubes up against a snow covered ice sheet pushed and buckled against the shore. 

This out-of-season ice-out situation did considerable damage to the northern shorelines of Deer Lake.

Large spring water seep in 3 feet of water: don't step here (or you will sink past your knee!))
