I am always happy to hear from my readers and they often share interesting stories with me. A reader asked me recently about the availability of that so- much-fun sport, ice-skating at the skating pond just north of Montezuma. Yes, folks, we used to have a fabulous skating pond up there.
The loss of this treasure (to many of us) is very real. The last and bottom dam on the Gallinas River is that canyon was large by many standards. The big cliff just to the south of the dam shaded it. This ideal location provided all the necessary elements to freeze thick, clear ice.
