Yale Gilder Boathouse in Winter

Yale University's Gilder Boathouse is just a few blocks from my home. I stopped by today while on an errand, and took a few photos. All I can say is: Don't expect to see any crews practicing out on the river this afternoon!

Yale docks, hove-to in solid ice (who left the coaching launch out on the dock?)

The Derby Dam, just below the boathouse. Did you know that back in the late 1800's, when winters were much colder than they are now, this was a popular destination for ice skating?
