Ice Queen's Castle

Okanogan-Wenatchee NF

Snow covered ice shelf, formed on the upstream side of an overhanging rock in the Icicle River, has icicles hanging off the lower edge as well as ice stalagmites forming on the upper surface. These fanciful formations remind me of scenes from a few science fiction movies, including one episode of superman. Photo © copyright by Robert Faucher.
