Wintry Drive around Presque Isle State Park

Waldameer Park's Ravine Flyer II wooden roller coaster naturally bookends a visit to Presque Isle State Park. It greets you on the way in and bids you farewell on the way out. You can see more views of Waldameer and Ravine Flyer II here on our other page.
As we entered the park, whiteout conditions were occurring. This is the view of the frozen Presque Isle Bay. The bay will be home to the Joe Roots Frostbite Open Golf Tournament on Sunday February 22nd. We saw this quirky event last year and highly recommend checking it out, whether or not you are a golfer.
 
 Walking out onto the bay.
 I noticed this little flower bouquet pinned into the ice. I am wondering if this has to do with the tragic drowning of a teenager back in the summer, or if this is for something else. Anyone know?
Now to the Lake Erie shores!

  It is tough to take good photos while snow is blowing towards you and onto the lens!
Here you can just barely see the ice dunes that form near the shores of Lake Erie. As the waves crash to shore into the freezing edges of the lake, they freeze up into mounds and create these cool formations.
 Not ideal photo taking conditions, but these formations are so cool!
 Yeah...decent photos of the ice formations are not happening today.
 More photos!
 The Ravine Flyer bids farewell to us on our way out, and reminds us to come back in the spring when it is running again.
