Default Icy Longarm Branch

Longarm Branch connects the Clark's Creek and Rocky Fork sections of Cherokee National Forest. In planning for a long hike out of Clark's Creek and up to Chigger Ridge, I took a little stroll up the Longarm Branch trail recently. It was a cold day for East Tennessee (in the teens F), so Longarm Branch was quite icy.

t was amazing (to me) how different the ice formations were, according to the speed and turbulence of the various portions of the stream.

Even the mosses were wearing icy "gems."

And the small springs wove long, delicate icicles.

Time was short on this trip, but trail conditions look good for our (upcoming) longer trek. Hope you enjoyed the little hike!

Love the ice pictures, and you are right, the variations in ice formations is fascinating.
