Frozen Wildwood

For all who read my last post about Charlotte and marveled at the 50 degree temps in February, one week later it is 4 degrees.  Our lovely 57 acre urban forest, Wildwood Park, is shining in it’s frozen glory.




To all my friends in the uber snowy northeast, I hope you have power and therefore warmth and water.

    • What a change from one weekend to the next! The sun has been brilliant during both weekends so… beauty no matter the temp.
      How are you, Bruce?
      Heading over to your blog in a bit!

  1. So beautiful!! That wall of rock with the frozen waterfalls reminds me of the Niagara Escarpment in Southern Ontario. I’m not familiar with the geography in this area …. what would this rock wall be part of?

  2. It looks so beautiful when water freezes on rock. We are experiencing very cold temperatures for the next few days. Today -25 (celsius) or -44 with the windchill. BRRRRR!

  3. Those photos are beautiful, Laurie. We had 70’s the last two days and now we’re back down in the deep freeze temps this morning. It’s been that way off and on most of January and February. Very strange winter weather this year.

    • Very strange weather indeed, Lori. We may even get snow tomorrow … I’m hoping! I mean if it’s going to be cold, we might as well have snow, right?

  4. So weird Laurie, frozen waterfalls, I find it hard to get my head around it. I suppose you get that smooth look of water without having to have the problems that I get, does that make sense?

  5. These images are beautiful Laurie I love them. I also like the little widget in the right side of you screen with the countdown to DC 🙂 I like Pauline’s comment 🙂

  6. Wow! Gorgeous, gorgeous photos. A little bit eerie, too. I’m ashamed to admit that it was in the mid-seventies here today. Sending warm wishes to the east coast and to our friends in the north, too.

      • Honestly, I don’t remember, Laurie, LOL. I’ve had my head wrapped around preparations for the Falls. We did a “dry run” today in 2 degrees (F), lasting 50 minutes. If I can, I plan on putting up a post all about it, with at least one glorious picture of the Park we were in. So excited about the Falls, to me my follower count is nothing in comparison. (((HUGS))) Amy

  7. Crazy weather everywhere! But how beautiful these photos are, Laurie! And now I understand Virginia is finally getting snow ❄️ (I’m in Colorado and snow fell overnight and today – beautiful on the foothills.)

    • Stacy, I somehow missed all of the comments on this post. You’re back from Colorado, right?
      Yes, we’ve been getting big snow …. FINALLY! In fact, I drove almost 5 hours in it this past weekend (normally take 2 1/2 hours). What a trip!

    • Susan, somehow I missed all of the comments on this post. It has been crazy hasn’t it? I got home Charlottesville yesterday afternoon and FINALLY shoveled the driveway. YAY I don’t have to trudge up and down with bag, laptop, shoes, groceries … 🙂

Because Boomdee dared me: Lay a little sugar on me :-)
