{Kushog Lake} Ice Climbing

Ice climbing is a cold and dangerous sport, but James and his buddies attempted it this past weekend up at Kushog Lake in the Algonquin Highlands. They had a blast scaling the walls of ice and camping out in a quinzee on the frozen lake. My fears of  them falling and breaking things were unfounded and by the looks on their faces when they returned, I'd say it might even be something I would like to try (for a day). These pictures tell the story of their adventure!
