Boston Lot

Still life with ice.

One of the upsides of the current situation is that I’ve tended to look closer to home for outdoor opportunities, and that means I’m returning to some of the local gems I’ve not visited in a decade or more. Yesterday I took a walk around Boston Lot Lake, a small pond in West Lebanon not far from the river at Wilder Dam. Its network of walking and biking trails are popular with local runners and bikers, even on this gray Saturday morning.

The lake was skimmed with ice., though the temperatures were beginning to rise above freezing, so it would not last long.

In one spot, some kids had been clearly been tossing rocks at the ice – some of which went through, and some of which were trapped in the ice.

An interesting still life with rocks and ice.
