About Today’s Photo:
Despite yesterday’s chilly temperatures (a high of 3 here…) there’s still quite a bit of open water and wet spots up along the trails of the Camel’s Hump Ski Center. Where snow meets water, delicate ice crystals form at the leading edge of the snow and create little tufts of snow-ice on the sodden beech leaves.
