Rime Ice on Appalachian Trail

Shenandoah National Park

A heavy layer of rime ice coats every tree and branch. It is a precarious time to hike. Tree limbs will fall, large and small. Chunks of ice will fall. The sound is actually quite loud, as the ice breaks and limbs crack. It is no time to linger in these woods. Photo © copyright by Ed Fuhr.
