The “City by the Bay” has  nothing on Clark Lake when it comes to fog, at least for the last few days.  Bill Leutz says fog has been covering the ice recently.  Bill attributes it to being “in the midst of a streak of unseasonably warm weather.” On Friday, the high was 57.

Bill captured the essence of the conditions in this photo, taken yesterday (Sunday) around noon, from the west shore of Eagle Point looking north.

Below, you can see how the lake looked by mid-afternoon, as the fog began to rise. Ryan Richardson was meditating on the Eagle Point gas dock after a Sweetwater Yoga session.


And finally, this what you saw if you were driving south on Eagle Point Road this morning–color tones you might expect from an Andrew Wyeth painting.
