This winter in North Carolina I saw something I had never seen before. I asked family and friends what this stuff was and I was told it is Hoarfrost.
These amazing ice crystals form starting at the ground and push the dirt up as they freeze causing these really awesome formations in the dirt.
Here's some pictures in case you are curious.......
See, aren't they just really neat? This last one reminds me of Coffee Cake. You know, the brown sugar part that you put in it. Could just be the color but I really like it!
Mother Nature amazes me more and more as I get older. Such beautiful things all around us, you just gotta get close to the ground to see them sometimes.
