Melting Icicle

Earlier this month I visited Shenandoah National Park in Virginia.  Nearly all the west facing rocks had large icicle formations on them.  On my way out of the park I decided to stop and get some photos of the icicles.  Since it had been above freezing they were all slowly melting.


Melt Off

As I hiked past this puddle of melting snow I stopped to look at the reflections in it.  Snow was falling off the trees in clumps and caused ripples in the puddle.
