Christmas Day Snowshoe

On Christmas day my son and daughter-in-law and I snowshoed from the Sable Visitor's Center down the trail along the river, past Sable Falls, to the lake shore. As each day passes this winter, the amount of ice on Sable River increases.

Going down the steps, Jericho decided to keep her snowshoes on. It was tricky, but she did a great job.

I just saw Sable Falls and took pictures of it the other day. With the warmer temperatures in the low 30s, there has been enough melt that the increased flow over the falls broke away and melted some of the ice covering the falls.

Here is evidence of some of the melting along side the river.

I posted pictures the other day showing all the ice boulders at the mouth of Sable River. On Christmas day there was one ice boulder left. The wind had changed to come out of the north. The larger waves broke up the ice. Notice how the icicles on the ice boulder have two directions -- showing that the chunk of ice shifted and continued to drip.

More photos taken at the beach.
