Hoar Frost Makes For A Lacy Landscape

On Monday while I was out driving in southern Cuyahoga County, I saw some very heavy hoar frost coating the trees where I-271 crosses over the Tinkers Creek/Bedford Reservation area. The sky was also a clear, bright blue, and the effect seeing the thick white frost on the trees against the blue of the sky was breathtaking. I had my small camera with me, but the freeway is not the wisest place to stop to take a picture. I settled for another area along the way to my destination which passed by the entrance to Bedford Reservation and was able to snap this picture of some of the trees. (It really doesn’t do it justice, as the frost wasn’t as thick as it was near the freeway. )
