|Look at the far right side of the lake . . . there is where the Niagara RIver starts.|
Do you see the island surrounded by the river?
The island, Grand Island, bends out to the right . . .
I am on the right bank in this location
taking pictures today.
This morning, they removed the boom. So now we have, what looks like, ice bergs have been calving up stream.
|This is the Ice Boom.|
The Corp of Engineers stretch it across the river before the ice forms.
The water flows below and the boom holds the frozen top of the lake.
We had to go to the park and get pictures. And, on the way out of the park, I saw a woodchuck scurrying up the hill to his burrow. So I also got two pictures of him peaking out at us.
|That's Indy's butt in the picture.|
Grand Island is in the background.
|Don't they look like mini ice bergs . . . with more ice under water than above?|
|Isn't Mr Woodchuck adorable?|
|Still just checking out his kingdom.|
