An ice storm on the first day of our visit made the whole area an especially magical place. These are ice crystals on one of the plants in Brian and Kristi’s yard. All the bare-limbed trees were covered in icicles. A real treat for we travelers from sunny California. I’d likely be less thrilled about such things if I had to live through an entire winter of them.
