I think that I MUST have seen this phenomenon before, BUT I can’t honestly remember. There was lots of it in this one area. I took these pictures. I then had to use Google LENS to look it up. Neat.

Yes, the explanation makes sense. He have been in the 50Fs the last few days, BUT this morning the temperature was below freezing. So, BINGO. Neat. Really pretty. I had to break some to make sure it was indeed ice. It was on a trail that is rarely used by anyone but I. So, I was NOT harming anybody else’s enjoyment.
