The Ice Bridge

Yesterday it was minus thirty-four with a wind chill of forty-two. I decided to walk across the river. 
I've done this before, but not on the official Yukon Highways Ice Bridge.

There isn't all that much too it oddly enough. A four lane highway, on ice. Obviously built to certain standards of course. Or one would hope.The snow is cleared and I suppose they might sand it from time to time. People drive slowly. Even at high noon you can see how much we are in the shadows with a sun low on the horizon.

It was cold. Bitterly cold. 
Too cold  to be walking across a frozen river in the Yukon.
