Mackenzie River Ice Breakup

In the spring the ice road reverts to its normal state of riverdom and the ice cracks into huge chunks and they float through town. Since it’s still been stupidly cold the river isn’t flowing much yet but there’s still some big impressive chunks on the shore. Some friends and I took a quick zip out to take some pictures, and of course Karina and  wandered out onto the ice where it was still thick and goofed around. P.S. These pictures were taken at like 10:30pm.

I’ll venture out again when there’s more little icebergs floating around and get some more pictures.

 

Hugs & Kisses from afar
