Culvert Beauty

Each winter we have ice form at the end of an 18" steel culvert. A spring that comes out of the ground on our lot flows down the mountain to a road ditch and then follows that ditch to the culvert. We often stop on our walks to admire the huge chunk of solid ice that forms where it comes out the end of the culvert. The stream flows all year long and when the  ice forms here the little creek about half way down our lot creates an ice dam that sometimes builds up to 4-5' high thereby backing up the water until spring melt.
While we don't have much in the way of snow on the ground we do have this beauty to look at on our walks so we thought we would share it.
