Icy Conditions

Our most recent trip was one that I will remember mostly as “COLD COLD COLD COLD”.  While I was wearing a decent amount of layers, the fact is I do not own a good winter coat for exploring, and I was freezing most of the time.

The neat thing is there was a lot of ice, in many forms.  Coating a machine in a glossy, rippled sheet; sprawled across the floors, smoothing them to nearly even; bubbling heaps slowly creating an ice monster….

Outside, grasses and bubbles became trapped in an icy tomb.


Inside the stalactites wore their own winter coats, of ice.
