Ice Hockey (On Lake)

    Newer Older

    Johnson Lake, Banff, Alberta, Canada. Nov. 8th, 2011. The Ice froze without any snow. You can see through the 4" + of ice at least 20 feet (6 m), The ability to see though the ice this well, usually only happens once per year, perhaps "once in a life time". Truly right place right time. Because as soon as the first snow falls on the ice it is gone for the season.
    You could see fish swimming under the ice. One guy reported a fish chasing after his hockey puck.
