Frozen from Top to Bottom

Flashback - January 2003

Perhaps the temperatures and weather conditions were right this year - I don't know. But I think it got cold enough for a long enough period to create the conditions we had here at the beginning of 2003. No matter - when it got warm enough to make the trek, the forecast called for windy conditions and I didn't want to put up with the windchill. The right temperatures are between 25 and 30 degrees.

A winter hike is best just below freezing so the gigantic icycles are not breaking and falling to their death, and perhaps anyone else's who is standing below.

These pictures are taken in Hocking County in a location that is private and is not to be plublished.

Although the falls in the public area can be very nice when frozen from top to bottom, I believe these are spectacular. Someday I hope to get

back there when the conditions are right.

The photo here were taken back in 2003 with a more simple digital camera, of the Olympus variety - which did a good job for what it was and the technoligy availabe at that time.
See the little people next to the huge frozen waterfall. I used those because they give it perspective.
