Bear Lake, Northern Utah - under the ice

February 7 2015
Bear Lake is a huge water body in Northern Utah - it's staggeringly pretty deep blue depths a result of high calcium carbonate from surrounding mountains. Early in the new year, it seemingly becomes a frozen wasteland; but underneath, life flourishes! We intend to auger a hole in the ice at Bear Lake and explore the bottom, and water column. We hope to see schools of fish, junk, and all kinds of fascinating booty! We also hope to bring back scientific observations, as we Masters candidates at Utah State University! Willie's dream has been to become an ROV pilot - and Paul loves anything underwater! Read background
