Karen, I wonder if you've been having some of the same thoughts I've had the last couple of weeks, i.e., that Michigan snow and ice in late winter and early spring provide speeded-up lessons in geology, showing us up close and personal what happens to earth forms over eons. Forces up uplift tumbling mountains! That's what I see in your photographs today.
Thank you, Pamela. I see the enormous power that the wind and waves have on the ice. Once, years ago, I was kayaking on Lake Ann when the ice was going out on a sunny April day. It was a windy day and the ice shifted and I was wedged between two ice floes. It was a humbling experience on the power that the wind and waves have on melting ice. And this whole process has been going on for eons. In the Great Lakes areas, we are able to witness these geologic lessons right in our own backyards. Karen
Dynamic captures of yet another aspect of this amazing winter on the Leelanau, Karen. Don't know about you, but I am more than ready to say goodbye to winter and hello to spring.
Thank you, Jan. I concur: No more winter. Hopefully we are headed in the right direction with our wishes. Karen
Wow! That sure looks like Polar Bear habitat.
Thanks for your visit. No Polar Bears here, but some hibernating black bears on occasion.
