Supercooled

Tok, AK (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Under the bridge at Yerrick Crick.

Pretty sure this water is 10-20 degrees or colder; temps have been around zero for a few weeks, all other waterways (except the big Tanana) are frozen over. The water's natural purity (few nuclei necessary for ice formation) contributes to this process, and the density created by this 'supercooling' contributes to the turquoise color.

For sure, next time I crawl down here, I need to bring a thermometer.

Sorry for the jiggling, no tripod...

Thanks Dave, wish I'd hauled the tripod down. But it was quite a long slog through 18 inches of snow, I forgot to get it out of the car, and I didn't want to go back.

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).
