Encased in Ice

Observation Tower Encased in Ice

Early this morning, the summit cleared after being in snow and fog for the past few days. This allowed our volunteers to get out and do some hiking. As we first cleared, we still had a layer of clouds below the summit. However, as a cold front passed with drier air behind it, those clouds eventually disappeared over the next few hours, leaving a sky that was almost completely clear.

As you can see from the picture to the right, the tower is almost completely encased in ice thanks to the varied wind directions we’ve seen over the past couple of weeks. If you look just above the ‘A-frame’, you can just see a sliver of an opening where the Deck Webcam is located. While we know everyone enjoys seeing the views from our various webcams, many times, it’s just not possible to safely get up to them from the outside to clear off all of the ice and snow. So please be patient as we do our best to keep them clear or until nature can assist us in melting them out.
