The Icy Onset of Winter

Emerald Bay State Park, CA

When the winter temperatures drop and it’s raining in the mountains, ice glazes over the landscape.  

If the temperature continues to drop, a light, fluffy layer of snow tops rocks and branches throughout the countryside.

Eagle Creek still sings and flows, decorated with odd icy structures created by frozen splashes.

Winter creekside scenery is complex and ever changing, as temperature and water flow sculpt the terrain.

Even the simplest of watery scenes inspires wonder about Nature and her mysterious processes.

As the water reflects the winter woods, so we reflect at the year’s end, and imagine how the new year will be.
