This is a picture of ice skating on Westchester Lagoon - Anchorage. We did most of our ice skating on Mirror Lake out in Chugiak. We used spruce trees to have a huge hot fire. The fire would go high in the sky and we did keep warm. As an adult I skated downtown at the park. I suppose though that most of my memories would be of skating in Minnesota. However. this is an Alaskan memory! My favorite winter activity.
