A Very Snowy Schluchsee

Today I traveled just north of here to the Schluchsee.  Due to unforeseen difficulties with the trains, we first foraged to Titisee.  This lake is a huge tourist destination in warmer months, where most come to paddle boat or canoe on the lake (or do some extreme touristy shopping).  During the winter months it's not nearly as bustling, and most people visit to go cross country skiing or take a walk in the snowy woods.  We had just enough time between connections to walk out and gaze at the snow-covered lake, and then head back to the train station.

5 stops or so further up the tracks we arrived at Schluchsee.  It's a massive lake, about 15 miles around, and was completely frozen over.  Some of the ice around the edges had begun to melt, so we weren't expecting to find anyone like these two gents hiking out on the lake to do some ice fishing.
