The Beach in Winter

Today, I visited Hoffmaster State Park on the west coast of Michigan to see whether the ice had begun to build along the shore.  Last week, at Sleeping Bear Dunes, there was no shore ice.  At Hoffmaster, the waves have built two ridges of ice extending about 50 feet from the shore. Hoffmaster State Park-2324Hoffmaster State Park-2331Hoffmaster State Park-2336Hoffmaster State Park-2344Hoffmaster State Park-2352Hoffmaster State Park-2357Hoffmaster State Park-2358Hoffmaster State Park-2369Hoffmaster State Park-2371Hoffmaster State Park-2378Hoffmaster State Park-2382Hoffmaster State Park-2387Hoffmaster State Park-2392Hoffmaster State Park-2406
