Lake Simcoe looked completely different today then it did last week. This past week we saw spring like temperatures in Barrie resulting in a thaw on Lake Simcoe. The past 2 days has seen a return to cold temperatures resulting in a lot icy areas on the lake. Today I skied the entire length of Kempenfelt Bay. Kempenfelt Bay is huge and feels like a separate lake all by itself. The bay was very icy. The first few kilometres I skied was sheer ice and I had to push pole through it. The rest of the bay was covered in icy patches. I ran into a number of pressure cracks, the largest of which was at the mouth of the bay. Towards the end of my trip my camera froze!
