The incredible sound of a lake freezing

Lakes can sound like a symphony this time of year when winter ice begins to thicken.

If you’ve never heard the sound before, check out this video. It was posted on YouTube a few days ago by videographer Tracey Hays, a resident of Two Inlets Lake, near Park Rapids, Minn..

Hays shot the footage in front of Bear Paw Resort, which she and her husband purchased six years ago after moving from Ohio.

“Photography is my hobby and I love sharing these kinds of unusual things,” Hays said. “The sound coming off the lake that day was just awesome. I think it’s because we have no snow cover, and the sound really carried and was just perfect.”
