I haven't had very many assignments for my new job this week, but I went out to do a couple this afternoon. One of them was on Ford Lake, near the small village of Fountain. Although it's only about 16 miles from me, I don't think I'd ever been there. It does have a public access site, so I need to get it added to Get Off The Couch. But I'll need to visit again in warmer weather to get better data. Now I know just where to go!
As you can see, the ice is solid and snowmobiles have been running across the surface. Not a problem with the temperatures we've been having!
Here's a view that's a little more artistically framed. The tree on the left is an alder, probably spotted alder, with some dried reeds frozen in the ice a bit farther out.
But, this one is my favorite. It's just some soft-stem bulrush poking through the ice. But I think it looks like two lines of writing in some exotic alphabet.
Nothing very unique... just a place that was new to me, and I'm sharing it with you.
