Adventure 2019: Lake Agnes Ice Formations (February 24)

Scroll down to content

Usually when you visit alpine lakes in the winter, you find them snow-covered and fairly uninteresting. Lake Agnes apparently gets a lot of wind, which keeps the surface free of snow. One of the most fascinating things from our trip there was the ice formations.

Locked inside the ice was an intricate web of deep cracks and frozen air bubbles. The ice was several feet thick, so the geometric patterns extended in all three dimensions, making for wonderful abstract images.
