Thin Ice

January 26, 2024

Do not go on iced-over water – especially in these variable temperatures. Ice can be dangerously thin, even if it appears to be thick and safe. Hike, snowshoe, sled and ski to your heart’s content, but do so safely: Stay on the trails, obey all posted signs and contact 911 at the first sign of trouble.
