Heavy Snowfall Adds to Challenge
We drew throught he snow, from 1-4" deep on the beach, with drifts up to 8". Jaber got too cold for his clothes and his knee was freezing up on him. My fingers were making for difficulty.
But before we left, after 4,000 lines, we went up the hills of ice to look at the lake. We went up about eight-ten fee of elevation, over ice and two foot deep snow, to get to the water's edge - slipping and falling all the way, only to find that the water is only about four feet lower than the ice. It must freeze and drain in order for the lower ice to be so far below lake level.
He also wanted triumphant pictures at the top of the ice hill.
