The images doesn’t lie. It was cold! Thanks, Reed!
The Ice Queen’s castle! 🙂 Beautiful, Steve!
I thought about invoking the Ice Queen but went for a hanging garden instead. 🙂 Thanks, Eliza!
Truly awesome. Great pic.
Thank you, Carol!
A truly outstanding photo of the ice palace with its bluish colour! If I had a choice I would prefer the hanging gardens of Babylon.
Thank you, Peter! I was pretty happy with these gardens at the time but now would agree…Babylon is preferred.
Wow. Now I’m imagining a little cruise boat packed with tourists in parkas and sou’westers sporting waterproof cameras. And I’d like to be right there with them.
What a cruise that would be. I’ve never been to Alaska but guess it would be similar.
Your ice certainly is more glamorous than the ice coating our roads and breaking tree limbs right now. Here on the coast, we’re lucky; we only have cold to contend with. It’s the people in central and north Texas who are suffering, but our time is coming. We’re not built for these conditions. In fact, when I realized I had plain water in the car’s windshield washer reservoir and went to get some fluid, I had to really search. Most places carry solutions that are good down to 32F. I had to go to a specialty auto supply place to find some rated for zero degrees. We’re headed for a high of 24 on Monday and a low of 14 — give or take. I can’t wait.
That certainly is a rare cold snap for your neighborhood. If you bravely venture out I hope you get to see some truly remarkable things. If you don’t go I wouldn’t blame you. Do you even have clothing to deal with those temperatures?
Thank you, Annie!
Did you pass through the portal?
You forget that I am claustrophobic. No caves for me. Actually one wouldn’t get very far as the shadows are a stone wall that the water tumbles over. For a view of the waterfall see my About page.
Spectacular formations! I’m glad you commented to someone else that the waterfall in the warmer weather is the one pictured on your About page (and, I assume, featured in some other posts?). Was it cold enough for this winter view to be solid? Or was the the ice melting and dripping? I used to love listening as drops fell from icy formations when I used to hike in upstate New York in the winter

Thanks, Carol! Yes, this waterfall and it’s upstream partners have appeared on the blog several times…a few during winter months. The name is Gunn Falls if you are interested in seeing the others.
It was frozen solid and the dripping is caused by the water flowing behind and splashing upon the icicles.
That’s so impressive, and it couldn’t have been easy to photograph. A winter hanging garden indeed!
It wasn’t that hard to photograph but it was tough on the fingers. There is a nice brook bank opposite the waterfall to stand upon. Thanks, Lynn!
