Dawn to dusk
FRISCO — I’m still on a mission to document the ice formations of all the major creeks and streams in Summit County, so this morning, I headed over to Dillon to try and get some shots of Straight Creek, below the town’s water intake. The landscape has changed quite dramatically around the intake in the last 12 months, with heavy duty logging, earth moving and a new culvert. The restoration work around the work site went well, though, and in a couple of years, when new vegetation takes hold it’s going to look good. Just below the intake and culvert, a maze of fallen trees partially dams the creek and sets up a series of small cascades and pools that freezing into fantastic icy sculptures, and before I even got to the creek, I stopped to watch the sunrise slant through an aspen grove on the hillside above.
