Yosemite Frazil Ice

Posted by MNAngler On April - 12 - 2011

The average temp in Minnesota this time of year is around 55 degrees. But this last weekend, it hit 70 degrees F and ice out happened overday (as opposed to overnight) for many local lakes. So in keeping with the warming/melting theme, I wanted to show what happens in Yosemite this time of year.

This video made the rounds several months ago. I forget where I first heard about it, but it’s worth another look even if you’ve seen it before. It’s amazing how the ice moves like a living, breathing organism. And just like that, it stops.

If you can’t view the video above, watch it on YouTube: Yosemite Nature Notes – Episode 9 – Frazil Ice

    Yup, I ran this video over on my blog a few months ago. It is just amazing to what Mother Nature do her thing. I encourage everyone to take another look at this piece.
