Watercress at -15°F


It was amazing to witness and photograph this spring fed creek for multiple days as temperatures fluctuated between -8 and -18°F. The ice would form on its edges and creep in and recede with the daily temperature swings. All the other streams in the area were frozen solid, but the ever present bubbling of spring water kept the ice at bay on this special spring creek.
