Ice Climbing

On January 9th, I was going back to hike in the snow on Flat Laurel Creek Trail again. The trailhead is located just north of the Blue Ridge Parkway on Highway 215. The actuall temperature this day was right around zero degrees and it had been below freezing for serveral weeks.

The water that seeps out of the rock rock wall on the left side of the road near the Parkway was frozen over into a solid wall of ice.

This provided the rock climbers an opportunity to have some fun scaling this wall of ice.


I stopped to watch for a while and enjoyed talking to Leslie with Fox Mountain Guides. Their website is located at http://www.foxmountainguides.com/ if you would like to check them out.
