Believe it or not, the above picture is Boca Lake (near Truckee, CA) completely frozen over. While visiting with my good friends recently, they took me to go pond skating which was SO much fun. They get to go pretty often and have some friends they play around on the ice with. They had some extra skates that fit so I got to even do some skating. This was a first for me but I love being outside and used to love ice skating when I was a kid!
Here’s Emily and I playing pass with some hockey sticks and a puck.
The ice was beautifully crystallized. I’ve never seen anything like it!
We skated all the way out to the middle of the lake, it was unreal.
Can you imagine having an entire lake to ice skate on? It was pretty great.
I was worried I may have forgotten how to skate but it’s just like riding a bike, it comes right back. Although it did take some time to remember where my balance needed to be.
There wasn’t much snow but I also was able to check out Squaw for a bit. The lines were short and it was spring like conditions. It turned out to be pretty fun!
Anytime spent in the mountains is well spent, especially if you get to do it with friends 🙂
Also, we hope you take a moment today to remember Martin Luther King. With everything going on in our country, it’s important to remember him and what he stood for. Hope you all had a great weekend!

That looks so fun, and reminds me of skating on a glacier lake in Alaska as a child!

I haven’t skated on a pond in so long because as soon as the ice freezes over it snows and conditions really rough. These pictures are beautiful; looks like a wonderful winter day well spent. I also second that last statement about being on the mountains with friends…today’s my Friday and I know exactly where I’m going to be these next few days! Snow snow snow!
