The Sparkling Season

There is a lot to love about the Sparkling Season:  Clear blue sky.  Fluffy fresh-fallen flakes.  Even the tiniest of branches covered in a layer of frost.  Glorious sculptures of ice. 

All kinds of surprises await when you venture out into winter's crisp, fresh air!

It was late March, and Lake Superior's fury was crashing on a breakwall near the end of Park Point. Sea spray froze into icicles on every nearby branch
