Please be careful out there on the ice! With Montana temperatures changing, ice conditions on lakes around Montana are variable, and we don’t want you to end up in a situation like the one pictured above.
Although the photographer of the above photo remains unknown, Joe Moline, of Lewiston, forwarded the photo to us and said that it was recently taken on Fort Peck Reservoir near Glasgow. This picture should serve as a caution flag to all of you that venture onto the ice for any reason. Keep in mind, that there are not always actual signs that warn people the ice may be thin, so it is your responsibility to check it BEFORE you head out on it.

Have fun out there, but always remember that safety should come first!
