life on the Oregon frontier just went environmental

Our first stop was Mann Lake open to trophy fishing year round. You'd need to take your chain saw to get the fish. The Steens Mountains are in the background. The ice was cracking on the lake so it was very noisy and the lake also moans and the sound vibrated off the mountains. Kinda spooky. Intrepid John is pictured here walking on water. I told him I would not come in to pull him out. The lake is fed by snow melt from the mountain but has no outlet. The movement of the water under the ice pushes it onto shore.
