Ice and snow …

Ice-over on Dillon Reservoir.

SUMMIT COUNTY — A few recent scenes from around the area in this unusually sunny December. Despite the lack of snow, Dillon Reservoir froze over pretty close to its average date. The planet may be heating up, but the date of the reservoir ice-over has held steady. On average, it freezes in the third week of December.

The ice along the shore near the Dillon Amphitheater is already about 4 or 5 inches thick and so clear that you can see fish swimming underneath.
