Big 3

Ice Scupture on Lake Rosseau

February 20, 2013 in Big 3, ice, Muskoka, Rosseau, snow, winter

Every day for the last couple of weeks, two guys (and sometimes 3) have laboriously made their way across the lake through slush, ice and snow to an island property where they are working. Their ATV has pulled a trailer, carved a trail across the lake and, done yeoman service. Fitted with tracks, in place of wheels, it has been able to haul a considerable amount of material. Today, after 24 hours of warming temperatures, mixed precipitation, driving snow and windy conditions, the roadway disappeared. Watching them progress, they seemed to be moving slower and slower while the machine labored on. Then they slowed to a stop and the machine quit. Frozen to the spot. An unwitting ice sculpture on Lake Rosseau.
