Brenda Leigh was in Escanaba last week and took some time to explore around the deserted harbor there. The ice was really just beginning to form amongst the boat docks and slips, so it's nice to see the "Thin Ice" photo warning visitors that it's not safe to venture out onto it yet. I'm guessing that they've probably experienced a melt down like we have here in the Keweenaw, since these photos were taken, less than a week ago now.

Brenda said that while taking these photos, she was actually wondering how many folks might end up in the cold, icy waters this winter, because they take chances going out on ice that's not thick enough to hold them.

This is a good time to put out the annual warning when ice is just beginning to form on our lakes and rivers here UP North. Please stay off the ice this time of year, as there is no such thing as safe ice. Unless you're experienced and have tested it in various places, just don't venture out on it period. Stay safe and dry.

Great photos, Brenda. Thank you! I love the dramatic lighting.

Ditto Mary's admonishments to stay off the thin ice. The fish will still be there when it's thicker and safer!

It almost looks like summer storm clouds.

Brenda, you are ever the adventurer!;) Thanks for sharing your trip.

Brenda's at it again. Nice pictures, Brenda. Thin ice is truly dangerous and I hope that everybody is careful when walking or driving on it.

I really like the play of dark and light in these photos. Great job!
