Skeleton ice

Ice at Pine Cove.

FRISCO — After months of stasis, things are changing fast in Summit County. with patches of green grass emerging from the side of snowbanks, as well as melting ice on local streams and, of course, Dillon Reservoir. It’s a great time to get out and see things visibly changing from day to day, and even hour to hour. In some of the coves facing the prevailing winds, ice from the winter piled up in great clumps and mounds, and as the surrounding snow melts away, you can see the structures that formed in the ice sheet to begin with — that’s why I call it skeleton ice.
