Skate Spray Lakes December 7, 2020

Spray Lakes Dec 7

Rare opportunity to skate smooth clear ice on a mountain lake.

Spray lakes has frozen during a calm night with no snow cover.

See first pic from Sunday from Matt Clay of entire lake so we decided to go skate it on Dec 7.

Some cracks and ripples but mostly smooth hard ice.

4 to 5 inch thick measured with ice climbing screw.

Imagine a 15 km breakaway.

Kevin and I did the suspension bridge loop on the way home.
