Some of the prettiest times in the mountains occur when an overnight ice fog coats the trees in an intricate frost that vanishes as soon as the sun hits. Last night was especially unusual, because the fog was accompanied by an actual ice fall that left the ground coated with what looked like white Dippin' Dots (sleet? oobleck?). I raced out at 6:30 a.m. to get some pictures before the magic was gone.
