Cold as Ice


Tower Creek Falls, Yellowstone

“Withstanding the cold develops vigor for the relaxing days of spring and summer. Besides, in this matter as in many others, it is evident that nature abhors a quitter.”

Arthur C. Crandall

Went on a short hike the other day, exploring a small waterfall. Nobody else around. So many hidden gems in this park. I could touch the ice and listen to the water gurgling behind a thick wall of ice. I could hold on to those icicles.

In a few months the ice will be gone, melted, washed down the creek, joining the Yellowstone river, ending up in the Gulf of Mexico.

Maybe I should follow the ice?

    do abhor…, does she do this really?
    i don’t think so.

    I’ve never seen such an icy waterfall and listened to it.
    For me, this sounds so poetic and beautiful, also the idea of following his melting water.

    what a free kind to thinking …

    I believe, in the spring you will know it whether, you want to follow him.
