A Cherished Day

A few days ago we had a day that I will cherish. 
We spent the day outside playing on Kluane Lake.

The cold temperatures have kept us inside lately, but this day was just perfect for playing
And exploring.
The wind blown ice surface, was covered in hard ridges of snow, but also had patches where the snow was blown away
and displayed these beautiful bubble patterns.
So fun to discover!
The windblown snow is hard packed, but still tricky to walk on as it is more uneven then it appears.
And  there was a huge pressure ridge to explore.
with beautiful blue ice.
The pressure ridge is  small compared to the size of the lake...
but large compared to us. 
A wonderful family day that I will add to my cherished memories of 2013. 
Jenny shares a wonderful idea of how to save and remember these special types of days here.

  14. Cherished, for sure - what BEAUTIFUL photos! Bubbles and pressure ridges (I want to stand under there, too) - pretty magical winter stuff! Happt Tuesday - Tanya

  15. So I read that you live in remote Northern Canada. What lovely photos of the winter and ice. We are battling winter here too, and although not as remote as Canada, not many stay year around in our area of the lake because of the wicked winter conditions and difficult travel in our area. Makes it hard to get out and around during the long winters. So I totally relate to the computer being an outlet when you are wintered in!
