A couple of weeks ago we had some unusually cold weather. How cold was it? So cold that the waterfalls partially froze. I think "partially" is the operative word here. But that did not deter one ice climber intent on adding Looking Glass Falls to his list.
It seems like poor judgment to me. Only a few feet to the climber's right, the water is running freely over the falls.

We did not go to visit the frozen falls this year, although we have been in the past. As you can see below, the waterfall was not as frozen on our last visit as it appeared above a couple of weeks ago. It was so cold and dark that everything has a blue tint to it. There were no other souls around on our visit.
Today is balmy and feels wonderful. What a treat to sit on the deck once again. Tomorrow the temperatures will drop dramatically. But this is March so we don't have too long to wait.
