    Really enjoy your post :) Which month of the year did you go to be able to see the transparent ice? Do they get too solid/snow too heavily in deep winter that the transparency goes away?

    The ice is so clear because the water in the lake is very clear. You can find such clear-ice patches throughout the winter, at least from the end of November to March.
