Les patineurs sur Lac aux Castor

Les patineurs sur Lac aux Castor
Sunday afternoon skaters on the frozen Lac aux Castor (or Beaver Lake, actually a largish man-made pond) up Mount Royal. (Despite its name and the fact that almost every native Montrealers calls it "The Mountain", Mount Royal is just a hill that barely tops over 230 metres, or about 765 feet).

We had a good time on the pond since the (normally much larger) crowd was preoccupied with a Montreal Canadiens game as well as with the Super Bowl on TV that afternoon. After a few circles around the pond, I took a break and snapped a few pictures (of which this is one) through the willowy branches of barren trees before rushing over for "milk and cookies" at the cafeteria in the background.
