Set 02 of My Favorite Ice Pictures
Bob Jensen at Trinity University 

From our cottage, three White Mountain ranges are visible to the east from our living room:
The Kinsman Range (about 10 miles east and southeast)
The Twin Range (about 20 miles slightly northeast)
The Presidential Range (about 30 miles northeast)
There are other ranges in the White Mountains ---
Vermont's Green Mountains are to our west


The Summer of 2011 heat and drought is exceptional in various parts of the world
Up in these mountains the summer has not been exceptionally hot or dry
But for readers who are baking in the heat and humidity
I provide you with pictures of ice --- our Jack Frost Paintings

This is a wild cherry tree on the south side of our cottage

This is the lamp post on our back deck and an old maple tree by our studio

I think this is a big cedar waxwing in the wild cranberry bush in front of my desk

This is the same cranberry bush with ice instead of show


Before we added more rim insulation we used to get some big icicles around our cottage
Below is ice over the dining room bay window on the north side of the cottage

Below are pictures of the icicles in front of the big windows of our living room


The icicles on the outside of the window
The star lights are on the inside (this picture was taken before the Christmas season)


In the back of our cottage a circle driveway surrounds a cluster of three birch trees
We lost one of the birch trees to an ice storm

We can see what is called Ore Hill to our Southeast from my desk
This is Ore Hill in the foliage season

Ore Hill has an abandoned iron mine (not visible in the picture)

This is Ore Hill in the winter season

In the heart of winter the sun sets around 4:00 p.m. in the south, southwest

I did not take the pictures below, but they are beautiful pictures intended to cool you off

Are their trails in our White Mountains of New Hampshire that have ice in summer as well as winter?
See "The Ice Gulch, Would I do it Again" by John Compton, August 5, 2011 ---

Okay, you might ask, is there really ice in the Ice Gulch, even in August? Yes, there is! The next photo shows one small patch of ice. There were many larger patches, but they were at the bottom of some of those deep gaps that I mentioned above. I took some photos, but none of them really turned out, even with using a flash to illuminate these dark, dank, deep spots.
