|Frost flowers, like stars, on fresh black ice|
Once in Brattleboro, we made our way to the dirt roads behind Wantastiquet Mountain, the 970 foot prominence that forms a dramatic backdrop for the town from across the Connecticut River in New Hampshire. We were rewarded with ice flows and forms and luxuriant hoar frost that only this crazy two weeks of weather could have conjured...and just in time before an incoming snowfall and soaring temperatures changed the magic.
First stop, the stream and cascades along the Gulf Road (W. Chesterfield, NH). All of these spectacles were discovered in one brief stop along the road...only 5º F. so we moved quickly.
