Mountain ranges of Prince Edward Island

Now that I’ve published the latest and greatest edition of my East Coast Trail Guide (link), I have some more time on my hands to take in the local winter scenery. Here’s another nice sunset, this one’s over the Northumberland Strait:

The sea around the island has frozen over in most places, but there are still some gaps. When sea ice is shoved back and forth by the currents beneath, icy ridges are formed, like you see in this picture. To an imaginative mind, these ridges may resemble vast windswept mountain ranges, while in truth they are usually no taller than 2 metres.
