South River Waterfall in Winter   Shenandoah National Park

Between the snow and ice, a stream of water cascades down South River Waterfall. A week after bitter cold and deep snow, the great melt has begun at one of my favorite waterfalls: South River Falls, Shenandoah National Park. The 2.5 mile hike back up the mountain was a tough slog in the slushy snow. Photo © copyright by Ed Fuhr.
