Walking on water

March is usually a good time to walk into town - the waterways are safely frozen, the snow is packed. But as climate change plays havoc with our winters, my trek back home after visiting with friends was an exercise in walking in meltwater, on thin skins of ice the melting snow had scabbed over with, and ... walking on glare ice.

*imagine snowy mountains, a cheap plastic toboggan loaded with camping gear and food, and a glare ice surface* (picture won't post)

Breakup was the earliest we ever had: May 2nd.
