Mystic Ice On the Blue Ridge




The Blue Ridge Parkway was clear this week
as we have had temps in the mid 30's with an
occasional 42 thrown in (for a few hours.)
The normally thick ice and snow have melted
back to expose this Ridge Top road once again.
The Parkway has a series of huge double gates
that they close (or open) every few miles depending
upon the road conditions...I was delighted to find the
trail to the south (this has some of the best
long views found atop the Appalachians)
open late in this week (past) so I seized
the opportunity to travel as far as
I could to 'spy' good potential photos.
And here they are. The setting sun was
silvery upon
the still frozen ice of
Julian Price Lake near
Blowing Rock,
elevation about 3850.

...Make sure to note the mystic
series of circles in both photos of the
frozen lake.
How cool is that?

  1. Gorgeous shots, lg! Those circles are really neat. 42 would feel downright balmy right about now...sigh...

  2. Those are great photos. I can't believe we are warmer up here in Virginia (about 50 now).

  4. Talon~ How cold are you? For us, spring is definitely on the far horizon (although it is supposed to snow a bit this coming week a for few days.) But temps are gradually warming here.
    Appalachian Lady! Glad you like them! What elevation are you I wonder? We are colder because we are @ about 4000.
    Lynn~ No skaters on this lake! I guess it was just a circular phenomenon of nature!
