A week ago, after a snowfall and while it was still somewhat mild out, I headed to Mississippi Lake. I was looking for outlooks onto the lake, but I was somewhat disappointed. Most shoreline has been grabbed by the rich, so there are few access points for the great unwashed. I did find one public spot, but with all of the snow, parking would have been difficult there, and it also would have involved a trek thru the snow. I would like to return when the snow is gone, however.
In my travels, I did come to an end-of-the-road situation where car tracks left the road and went out onto to the frozen lake. The first three photos show the view from near the end of the road, each getting closer to the lake.
Then, I walked down to the frozen surface and took this photo of the shoreline.
Finally, I cast my view way out onto the lake where I saw a number of ice fishing huts in the distance. With no trees and with the sun behind me, there is no colour to speak of, but some of you might find the scene to be of interest as it would not be something that you see every day. Me neither. In fact, it kind of surprised me.
