Eddy


Because some of you were curious how the Great Falls area might look after all the cold weather we've been having, I gathered all the warmest clothes I could find (except my warm hat, of all things, that I forgot and left behind!), grabbed my camera, and headed down the trail to see what I could see. The first thing that caught my attention were all these little "icebergs" that had gotten caught in the eddy just below the main set of falls. They were just swirling round and round in a clockwise direction.

  1. Looks cold indeed but still a lot of floating water.

    1. Good question, RedPat. I've been wondering the same thing. I don't think I can remember ever seeing it totally frozen over. It just rarely remains this cold long enough to do so. Maybe up there where you are, but not here in the DMV.

  7. It is pretty! The waterfalls here do have a tendency to freeze over when it's cold enough, depending on the winter, but the water's still flowing beneath the ice.

  8. I just saw a photo of Niagara Falls...it was pretty much frozen over. When I saw the word, Eddy, I thought you were going to show a dog, but then the name would have been spelled "Eddie." Now go get your hat and stay warm. Sheesh! :)

  9. I enjoy these moments during our winters, and there's one waterfall fairly close to me that we're going to check out this week.
