This afternoon my daughter Kristine and I stopped at the Carl Spindler Marina in East Peoria to look for ice shelves. When the Illinois River floods and freezing weather follows, ice forms at a high water level. Then, as the water level falls, ice clings to tree trunks as series of shelves. I liked the look of the shelves in the bright, angled sunshine. The most shelves were at the far end of the boardwalk trail.
