Better ice today

Headed up to Poolburn early today with Dave P.  More ice overnight and much more stable.  Much of the main bay was skate able and we had a fabulous skate all around Claw Bay.  Good hard ice until it warmed up.  Was interesting to see the effects of the wind and snow in places - piles of wind blown ice and unusual freezing pattens caused by the light snow cover.
 I left Dave up there to camp overnight  and headed off to check out a new spot and was treated to amazing black ice.   Could not get off as it was so smooth and hard.  You know you have had a great day skating when you have to get back to the car by head light.

...just resting....

Hard black ice - the best...
