The Falls at Matthiessen

Started off winter break by visiting some great outdoor places: The southeastern shore of Lake Michigan and Matthiessen State Park.

The late summer and fall were quite dry, dropping the water levels of small lakes, rivers and streams, virtually eliminating the waterfalls at Matthiessen and Starved Rock. I was surprised to see Lake Falls so full and frozen. My guess is that even a few trickles of water will freeze into the huge ice castle that greeted us early that morning.
