That's All Folks! - Part 2

There are many waterfalls and areas where water drips down the rock walls along the North Cascade Highway. With temperatures hovering in the low to mid-teens last Saturday, the water was frozen in many places.

There was one area in the gorge outside of Newhalem that had an interesting ice formation. I wish I could judge how tall this ran but it was probably close to 8 or 10 stories high. We did stop to take these photographs.

Now we wait for the spring thaw.

This water frozen in time is spectacular. The best part about winter in my mind.

Wow, that is truly a neat series. I don't think I've ever seen frozen waterfalls. Thanks for posting!

Your snow pictures (in the post below) were beautiful, but the frozen falls here are breathtaking! I'm glad you had your camera with you on your final trip of the year. Wow!

(Beautiful, but cold. Definitely time to head for the coast ;>)
