Wish I knew more about the formation of snowflakes Keith and Wilma. I am thinking that yes Keith, these might have come down through colder air, so they didn't retain glassy, smooth plates. Just thinking out loud.

Thank you both for stopping by!

Seems as though these flakes are made of zillions of tiny crystals - each sparkling in your camera lens. Fantastic, Katy!

It looks like it has glitter on it.
I wonder if it is a very cold snow flake that falls through warmer, humid air that crystalizes on it?

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).
