Ice Cave

Tok, AK (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Geez I'd sure hate to fall into Yerrick Crick just now... the recent foot of snowfall caused the supercooled waters to run over the ice, cutting canyons and caves in the ice that encroaches from underneath, both sides, and above... this 'cave' looked to be 8-10 feet deep, swirling with super-chilled current...

Thanks Linda and Squashed. I am on the bridge overhead for this shot, yes we are looking down into a cavern formed by ice growing from below, into 8-10 feet of flowing water.

That scares me to just look at.  Are we looking through the water?  It must be very clear.  I feel like I'm watching a National Geographic Special, they always awe and inspire as your pics do.  Please be careful.

You stay away from dangerous footing -- that's what zoom lenses are for!

I've lived in Alaska since 1969. I love this wild land. The extremes of the far north shape and affect every living thing. Extremes of weather, elevation, daylight hours, isolation, flora and fauna, nothing in Nature is insignificant.I have a Davis Vantage Pro weather station, uploading to Wunderground, (Turks on the Tundra) the National Weather Service, the Citizen Weather Observation Program and MADIS (Meteorological Assimilation Data Ingest System).
