Nature’s changing artworks in Clear Lake

It finally feels like spring on the Riding Mountains.                     Clear Lake ice is melting.

At the Spruces picnic site today, I heard that sound that I love in the spring, that is so rare because it is so short-lived – the tinkle of ice (full of holes and crumbly) as the edges of small ice pans rub against each other.  Tomorrow, I look forward to golfing.  The greens at Clear Lake Golf Course are already in great condition – they wintered well.
