February 2015 was the coldest month on record in the Ithaca area, in New York’s beautiful Finger Lakes region. And this winter was the first time Cayuga Lake came close to freezing over end-to-end since 1979. And from many perspectives on this lake that stretches beyond anyone’s horizon, at least while they are standing on the ground, Cayuga Lake did appear to be totally covered by a layer of ice, however thick or thin. In this 100th episode of Walk in the Park, let’s take a look at the evidence of Cayuga Lake’s freeze, from land and sky, and even from space!
This episode of Walk in the Park will continue showing this Saturday and Sunday morning at 10 AM on Ithaca’s public access cable TV channels 13 and 97,3, and finally on Tuesday, St. Patrick’s Day, at 8 PM. And you can watch it right here online at any time!
