French Creek (Ice Fun)

I hadn't been by French Creek State Park in well over a month so I was curious to see how it looked this winter.

Curiously, the Hopewell Lake parking lot was nearly as full as a fall weekend. When I turned the corner, I realized that the lake was frozen and dozens of people had come to experience some fun on the ice.

There was ice fishing, figure skating, hockey, dog walking but most people just wanted to experience the sensation of walking on 8" of ice. It wasn't slippery though, it was uneven and rough and quite easy to walk on.

The parking lot at Scotts Run was full as well as the road shoulders all the way to the next parking area. The lake was spread with ice fishers.
