On a very cold day a few weeks ago we took a hike up the Appalachian Trail on Schaghticoke Ridge just south of Kent, Connecticut.

This is a collection of ice formations that were either in the same flow in different places or on the trail leading up to the flow. The variety was amazing and had I spent more time there I’m sure I would have found even more although my fingers would have become so numb I wouldn’t have been able to use the camera.
