Ice storm sunrise

We stopped in Colby, Kansas on the way back to St. Louis Friday night. It turns out the giant snow storm on the Front Range was quite the ice storm in Kansas. As the sun was rising, we drove past this rest area with a comical amount of ice making the trees droop in every direction. I encouraged Mark to make a pair of U-turns so we could go back and take some pics (and a potty break). The light sparkling through the ice coating the trees, fences, and power lines made this about the prettiest place I’ve ever seen in Kansas.

Hey, by the way, Merry Christmas everybody! Happy Holidays, and enjoy the winter solstice!
