Bison River

I regularly drive past the Bison River and I always check on its state as I go by. Two weeks ago it was frozen almost completely solid but contained many ice heaves as a trickle of water, insulated by the thick ice, continued to run through underneath during the winter.

But a freely running channel has now opened up as our daylight hours continue to lengthen and the sun shines on the ice for longer periods. We now only have about seven hours of darkness, and these will shorten to about two hours of twilight as we near the solstice.

Happy Saturday!
