Skating in a Winter Wonderland

I have always wanted to ice skate on a pond. Here in Utah, the weather gets cold, but not usually cold enough for safe skating, especially in the valley. After a few days in the teens, this ornamental pond that didn’t quite get drained all the way was frozen enough to take a spin! Even so, the sun had melted the half of the pond that wasn’t in the shade. Luckily, no wet toes.

Outdoor skating is pretty fun. I had the whole pond to myself, and the rocks made a fun obstacle course.
