|icy stalagmites/Hershey's Kisses sculptures|
Dan and I went out for a wee winter wander to get some fresh air on Christmas Eve in the Six Mile Creek area of town. It's a place I've been to many times in the warmer months, particularly when I was younger, for Ithaca's version of cliff jumping. (Of course, the smallest cliff was the highest I could handle.) But I don't remember ever really taking the time to look around there in the winter. We discovered Mother Nature's got a way of quietly making her presence known in some extraordinary ways. I live to be in awe of and inspired by how beautiful the world is.
