Sun Breaks The Ottawa River Ice Fog

Story and photos by Guy Jolivet

A sleepover in my ice hut at Petrie Island usually has me waking up to the sounds of whining snowmobiles, ice augers and barking dogs. The morning of Tuesday, March 1 was like no other and I woke to the sound of nothing but chirping birds. As I stepped out of the Bema Shack I was taken back by the sight of the beautiful morning sunrise shrouded by the ice fog of Baitshop Bay. The sight forced me to grab my camera to savor such a glorious experience.
