Skating on Kringlevann at last

After multiple trips over the past few weeks to Kringlevann all resulted in failed attempts at skating, I was beginning to think my chances of skating in the great outdoors this season was fading fast. Fortunately we had a good freeze over the past few days and only a minor dusting of snow. After I trudged up the hill to the lake, I was greeted with a solid 50 – 70 mm of rock hard smooth ice 😀 The snow on top was all fluffy stuff which didn’t affect skating at all.

Clearly this went off with a big crack as I turned around immediately!

I brought a drill along in case I needed to gingerly make my way onto the surface, but it turned out to be hard as a rock and not needed.

    Great stuff Ryan. I love the story told by the turn-about tracks. And there was a wild beast on the ice too?

    70s here altho’ 50s or even 40s at night. Not chilly enough to make my nearly world class chili until those are the day time temps.
