My picture was taken July 17 2006 just before sundown (which happens at about 4:00pm) You can see the freezing rain driving into into the slushy water that freezes every night. There is a great benefit here... choose your place wisely and the prudent cruiser is frozen into place overnight so there are no issues with anchor holding. And you can walk to shore to gather berries or perhaps snare a squirrel or two for supper. When the feeble sun peeks above the horizon at about 10:00 am, there is usually enough warmth to thaw the anchorage freeing us from the ice and allowing us a few hours to find another idyllic spot for the next night.
