Abraham Lake in January

I went to Abraham Lake near Nordegg, Alberta, Canada, in January. This is the first time I’ve been there in the Winter. Usually I go in the Summer so this was different. The roads were good but it was cold. There were a few people out at the lake. I have to commend these people for being out here in the middle of nowhere. This is not a place where you want your vehicle to break down.

Abraham lake has these methane bubbles that come up from the bottom The bubbles get frozen one on top of the other which makes it look amazing. I guess you can call them frozen bubbles.

This area where I went to take pictures is near an Indian reservation. The people who live there are called the Kiska Waptan-Wesley First Nation. There is a store and gas station there. It’s a small community but I thought I would mention it here.

Road to Saskatchewan Crossing. The road goes south from here. Kootney Plains is over that hill.
The moon was coming out just as I was having some food. I grabbed my Olympus EPL1 camera and took this.
That’s the David Thompson Highway 11.
