Big Ice


Stepping out of the car at Meyer-Broadway Park, I discovered that the snow had melted and refrozen so that everything was slippery and slick. The dogs didn't care, and I kept to snowy areas where I could break through the crust. An empty park and a nice quiet walk - when a couple of van-loads of Amish teenagers showed up and tore off to the top of the big, icy tubing hill. Some didn't even bother with the tubes, just threw themselves down on the ice and rocketed to the bottom. Faster than a speeding buggy!

I like the lone figure on the big sweep of ice. Seems like such fun.

Er not for me thanks - I prefer to keep warm - great shot though.

That sounds a little scary to me, but I guess they have done it before!
