Golf on the Frozen Lake

Today there was a golf derby on the frozen lake. Many cars drove onto the ice and the occupants played golf with orange colored balls. Flags were set up to mark the greens (snows). It was a perfect day for such an activity. So far no stray balls landed in our yard or hit the […]

Fishing Derby

Today was the Fishing Derby on our lake, many vehicles arrived with people all decked out in Carhartts or snow suits. At first it was chilly and windy, but as the day progressed the sun came out and the wind slowed down. It looked like a good time was had by all.

Fishing Hut

Today there are about six or seven fishing huts in our view of the lake. Fishing must be good!

Seriously Gorgeous Sunset

Wow, we’ve had some seriously gorgeous sunsets lately.

Winter Sunset Best!

Wow, the sunset kept getting better and better. Awesome!

Winter sunset 4:00PM

The sunsets at this time of year can be spectacular. This one is shaping up to be gorgeous. I’ll keep watching and taking photos, maybe post another for tomorrow.

Wind Polished Ice

The wind has been blowing for days, and has polished the ice into a slick surface. Not good for walking right now.

40 ft. Christmas Tree

Our tree is visible all over the lake. So beautiful!

Christmas Day Stroll

The lake was busy Christmas day, people walking, skating, snow machines, ATV’s, dogs, ice fishing huts, and everything else. The day was sunny and not too cold. Christmas in Alaska, fun for all!

Merry Christmas

The ice is thick enough to support a vehicle, an airplane took off and landed the lake is now a huge runway. People are riding snow machines and ATV’s and the winter fun has begun. Because caring for Bob is taking so much of my time, as well as working on a 32′ commission for […]

Melting Lake Ice

42 degrees and wind, the lake ice is melting. Strange weather for this time of year.

Duck Migration

The ducks are migrating south, they stop here for a little rest on the lawn, then take off all together and continue their journey.

Ice Fishing Hut

It is cold and windy outside, but the ice fishermen are toasty warm inside the fishing hut with a heater and a T.V. so they won’t miss the game.

Wind Polished

Nineteen degrees and howling wind, very uncomfortable outside.

Fog

Rather foggy out there today.

Ice Cracks

The wind has polished the ice and exposed a myriad of cracks in the ice.

Lake Snow

A little snow on frozen ice and you have a lake of snow. Temperatures were around 9 degrees this morning.

Frozen Surface

Yesterday morning the surface of the lake was frozen with a thin crust of ice. It will grow thicker each day as temperatures do not rise above freezing. The temptation for those who do not realize how thin the ice is, is to walk on it. Warning, stay off the ice until it is at […]

The Resident Muskrat

This little guy lives under the dock burrowed into the soft mud bank. I rarely get to see him. Once the lake is frozen we will see his bubble trails, occasionally he will appear beneath our feet under the clear ice.

Ducks on Ice

No Bald Eagle today so the ducks are back in force!
