Ouzel Falls

Everyone loves waterfalls-the hypnotic rush of flowing water, the brilliance of cascading water in the sun, etc.  Well I would say they just as beautiful, if not more so, in the winter.  Last week I hiked to a local waterfall spot called Ouzel Falls.  The water was still flowing, but was encased in a sheath of ice.  Check it out.

The ravine you walk through to get to the falls (well and up and over and down and around).  The rock itself is fascinating.


 Not the real thing, just a mini-waterfall on the way.  Still cool.


Looking down on the falls.






It is hard to tell since they are still photos, but you can see the water still flowing behind the outer shell of ice.  God doesn't freeze rivers for a reason they say (alluding to the fact that you can fly fish year round).
