Icy, Icy Intervale

So, I visited my site on Sunday to snag some photos of the conditions from the previous week when my phone died and I couldn’t get any pictures. The conditions were the same with a lot of ice and some snow on the ground, the river completely iced over and terrible tracking conditions.

These two photos show how treacherously icy the Intervale road and surrounding fields were with sheets of ice, some patches of snow, and some exposed ground.

This was the only wildlife sighting of a farm field occupied by a large flock of crows.

The river ice was cracking on the near bank and it was just terrible, terrible tracking conditions. Fortunately, I made it to my site and back without falling, a total of 2.5 miles along the road and in the fields.
