Lake Erie--Frozen . . . and Beautiful!

Lake Erie is beautiful in all seasons. I was swimming in it early last September, which seems like yesterday--and forever ago at the same time. When Linda and I went to see the Lake yesterday at Mentor Headlands, it was frozen as far as we could see. At the Lake's edge there were huge dunes of ice, with sheer cliffs about 25-30 feet tall going down to the flatter frozen surface. Here are a few photos:

The whiteness washed out the horizon in this photo.

You can see an animal trail below, the line of ice cliffs, and far in the distance, the Fairport Harbor lighthouse.
