A Peaceful Place

ice

Mendenhall lake is a peaceful place this morning: silent, wet and gray except for the aquamarine glacial ice. The lake ice is useless for skiing after a day or two of rain. We had better success on the campground trails. Aki walks chest deep in slush, apparently ready to give the lake a try. But her people find it enough to stand near the shore and watch the glacier disappear behind a descending cloud.
