Morning photo: Weird ice

Gotta love winter!


Ice and frost formations along Tenmile Creek in Frisco, Colorado.

FRISCO — Every now and then I take a break from admiring (and photographing) Summit County’s stunning landscapes to zoom in a little closer. In the winter, that means checking out the sometimes bizarre ice and frost formations around local streams, lakes and reservoirs. This set from the archives features some of the more unusual formations.
