The Ice Tree

Barton Ice Tree (3 of 3).jpg

Out past our house, on Route 16, is this ice tree. The owners of the tree, I heard, wondered what it would look like caked in ice. So they ran a hose from the pond to the tree and this is the beautiful ice formation that developed. This photograph was taken in January. We are all wondering if the tree will survive the weight of the ice. I can't answer that yet, but you can see, below what it looks like now. It seems like they may have reinforced the tree, also.
