Walking on a frozen lake - Actifit: January 19 2021

in Actifitlast month (edited)

One of our favorite things to do (because we live in Minnesota and you either have to embrace winter or move away) is to go walking on snowy trails snd ice covered lakes.

This is the lake we walk on the most. It’s quite near our house.

In this picture I am fully dressed for the cold, standing on the lake, leaning against the end of someone’s dock, where in winter there would be boats. The owl, in case you were wondering, is not real. It’s a decoy designed to keep ducks, geese snd seagulls from setting up camp on their dock and making a mess with their bird poop.

Of course we had to do a selfie too.

Here are a few pictures of activities on the lake. These people are having an ad hoc doggy play date.

These are some kids on an ATV hauling another kid on a sled.

Here’s one of several skating rinks on the lake.

And here’s a man tending to a skating rink with a torch. I have no idea what the goal is there.

And of course there are the huts that the ice fishermen put up.

Here’s an island in the middle of the lake. In summer you can only get to it by boat.

And here’s a parks snd recreation gazebo. In summer people can get some shade there, and where I’m standing to take the picture is the swimming area.

There is even a road on the lake!

Walking in a frozen lake? I don't know if I would dare! :))

Some people are fearful of it. But it's really quite safe this time of year. 😁

For example, me! :D

Ha ha. And one of my family members! I added a picture of a road on the lake. It amazes me too, but the ice is very strong!

Gotta get back to Hive! Looking great. Awesome to see you blogging away @jayna. ❤

Thank you, @yogajill!

I really am continually amazed by the great content here and the awesome communities. I only wish I had more time!

This is an essential trek in the quest to call yourself a Minnesotan. You did it justice, @jayna.

And here’s a man tending to a skating rink with a torch. I have no idea what the goal is there.

I would guess he is trying to melt down a bump in the ice, to make a smoother surface to skate on.

Hey, great to see you, @intothewild.

And thank you for the torch explanation. I assumed it was something along this lines!

We must have been too warm coz I do not see many people out there on the lake yet. A few brave souls but no where near how it usually is...

Maybe it's because of climate change, and people don't trust that it's truly frozen!
