I Promise... No More!
We have passed the half way mark for March and here we are again, digging out after another MAJOR snowfall. Received 36cm yesterday for a total of ,,,, I have really lost count... but definitely greater than 450 cm (14ft 9in.) No matter how you calculate it, that's one heck of a lot of snow.... and that's only been the last 7-8 weeks!!
But back to topic. I promise, no more rants and no more pictures of snow covered ..... everything, after today!!
My daughter and her hubby were snowmobiling on the week-end and were able to get a few great photos of one of their stops. I will share them with you. I did a similar post a couple of years ago, but I am still fascinated by this spot. I have been assured that "It's not for you, Mum"! Although that has failed to deter me most times, this time I will agree!
This is the "entrance" to the Ice Caves, about a 45 minute car drive and an additional 60 minute snowmobile ride from where I live. One has to rappel down this hill using a knotted rope.....I MIGHT be able to do that..... and them climb back up using the same rope and toe holds in the snow. That I could NOT do!! They kept their helmets on for safety!
This is where the icicles have been broken off to allow people to go behind the ice and see what is usually a waterfall, from the inside.
We can see the edge of the rock outcropping over which the falls,,,,,, well...er....fall! I love the aqua color that is seen when viewing the ice from the inside!
Again, the entrance/exit from the inside, looking out! Thanks to Jennifer Liston for the photos!
While reviewing this post I have discovered a strange green border around the photos.
Well Gosh and Begorrah! It appears a mischievous leprechaun has been taunting me as I forgot to mention that today is St. Patrick's Day. Well, let's get that cleared up now.
Happy St. Paddy's Day to all the Irish and Irish-for-a-Day people out there!!
