And so our paths converge with the passage of time. I found much to appreciate and empathize with in your journey of rediscovery, not to mention the natural beauty of the land I grew up in. Keep the faith, Ike; Your journey is far from over. I, for one, am looking forward to reading the next chapter.Nov 6, 2019 at 1:21 pm #3617464

Excellent write up. I’m coming into this stuff a bit later in life, and this gives me hope that there is still plenty of time to have some true adventures.
Keep kicking ass.Nov 6, 2019 at 8:38 pm #3617520

I really enjoyed this, thanks Ike. Your frozen landscapes are quite alien to this desert dweller.Nov 6, 2019 at 9:01 pm #3617526

Nice writing, pictures, trip,…
I’d be worried about waking up the next day and the ice shelf I was on separated from the shore and drifted out into the lake : )Nov 7, 2019 at 3:08 am #3617567

That was really wonderful – thank you! Good on you for pushing some limits. It’s all too easy to find reasons NOT to do things that make us feel more alive.Nov 10, 2019 at 2:29 am #3617986

Ike. Thank you. That was beautuful, motivational and breath taking! It also made me more thankful for the fire that’s going in my wood stove right now!Nov 10, 2019 at 10:21 am #3618004

Cool trip report. I go up there about once a year to climb the ice. I’m not an athletic ice climbing expert so my climbs have been just inland, within a few miles or so of sand point.
I’m surprised you didn’t encounter any ice climbers on your trek. Ice climbing is a booming winter activity up there.Nov 11, 2019 at 3:20 am #3618102

Glad to see you’re still getting after it in the cold. Excellent story telling as usual. Has me fired up for the upcoming season. Seems like forever ago when we did the east shore of Superior.
One question though, why snowshoes instead of your Nordic skis?
Hope all is well.
