It’s been freakishly cold here, with a big winter storm supposedly on the way, yet today was 55º, go figure, so we took advantage of our balmy reprieve, and walked Charleston Falls, home of Thorny Badlands.
It was worth it. The frozen waterfalls were so magnificent, it took our breath away. We’ve never seen them quite so spectacular. Note the ice cave formed by the dazzling ice stalactites.
Elsewhere in the park, snow was starting to melt on the prairie paths, as were the frozen streams and pond. Notice the big warning sign not to walk out on the unsafe icy pond, and all the human tracks ignoring it! Dumb humans.
