A frozen lake in the Yukon turned into a pool after warm temperatures hit the area - watch how these campers dealt with it

"This week, outdoor adventurers in Yukon, Canada, were in for a surprise when a frozen, snow-covered lake suddenly turned into a swimming pool. Several days of temperatures near 50 degrees melted the snow on the surface of Lake Laberge, even though the ice underneath was frozen solid and almost two feet thick. This week’s temperatures have broken records in a part of the world that is used to being in a deep-freeze that often lasts through the month of May.

Fortunately for them, the campers had canoes at their campsite, and were able to get their gear home by towing the canoes by snowmobile across the lake."
