This morning started off with fog rolling in and enveloping much of our area with crystalline hoar frost.
The back yard aspens were in greater contrast when covered with the briar-like formations but they quickly melted away with the rising sun.
The pines also sported their own armor of white spikes as well. Interestingly, there must have been a slight breeze or wind as the frost only formed in the direction of that air movement and other parts of trees and structures had no frost at all.
It did make for a very interesting winter wonderland scape while it lasted.
