Mendenhall Lake Freeze Up

We were treated to glorious day yesterday. Unlike up in Western Alaska it was clear and calm in Juneau and most of Southeast Alaska. Went for a quick visit to Mendenhall Lake to see if the lake was still navigable, but almost the entire lake was covered by a thin film of ice, and it’s unlikely that it will thaw again, with temperatures expected to drop into the teens by next week. So I put the sea kayak away – it will have to wait until next spring for another spin around the lake.
