Icicles at Ozone Falls

These are just some icicle photos from when we visited Ozone Falls earlier in the month.
Could see the water dripping even though the temp was in the upper teens.
So it made it a little scary to walk under those sharp points.
Could see where the icicles had hit the ground, so stayed away from those spots.
Jimmy didn't like me standing under the rock overhangs either.
He kept pointing out the cracks in the rocks, and we all know freezing and thawing is what makes these big rocks break off.
If I had stepped out from under it and it had fallen I think it would have still gotten me.
They don't just fall straight down. Besides I was beginning to get real cold. Time to start the climb back out of there.

Beautiful my Friend... I've been to those exact same spots.. It is kinda scary when thinking about the rocks breaking!!!! Great icicle pictures.. We didn't see icicles there when we went after all of the rains--but we do have some icicle pictures from a previous year's visit.

Thanks!! I've been waiting to see pictures from your visit there.
Hugs,
Betsy

These are fantastic. My favorite is the last one. It probably was the riskiest! You know that's part of the reasons we have husbands, to keep us safe. We usually don't listen, but the good ones keep trying.

These pictures are absolutely beautiful. I hope you didn't give your husband heart failure while taking them.
