The Ice Queen Cometh

How sweet is Ice? It cools our gin in the summer. It gives us endless recreational opportunities in the winter. It graciously provides us with synonyms for Smirnoff‘s malted beverages, righteous bling, meth, murder, in case of emergency, and Ned Stark’s justice-dealing greatsword, (which, when you think about it, fit together a bit too perfectly)… You just take water, cool it down, and boom! You’ve got yourself something to interpret. All summer long the hike to Glacier’s Avalanche Lake is unbearably busy, but come late fall, it is your own private glittering little diamond trail of wonders…

  1. Thanks for entertaining me and making me laugh and smile when I’m procrastinating.

  2. These are strikingly beautiful pictures, reminding me of Eliot Porter’s Intimate Landscapes. I wish that I had had the Forest Ninja as a poster in my room when I was a teen. But who is The Vanilla?
