Tok, AK (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: No matter how cold it gets, this crick never NEVER freezes. Ever. I've seen the temps dip close to -80, and this crick remains open. Warm-spring fed from nearby mountains.

Beautiful Katy--and yes, fer sure it is a crick. You have really been busy shooting. I love your Ice shots, congrats on the AC. Must be a really warm spring in there. I bet it would be good natural hot tub. :0) LOL.

Outstanding shot Katy! You might as well go for a swim in that warm water. If a Yooper says it's crick, then crick it is.

Now I'm wondering whether "crick" is a redneck thing, or more of a northern thing. We say "crick" here in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan too. Either way, that's an awesome shot! It's unbelievable the temps that crick sees and doesn't freeze!

Pretty shot. They call them "cricks" in my neck of the woods too.

I didn't know they 'made' rednecks as far north as you are...
Lovely shot of your 'crick'!
