Frosty Trees and Chena River

Frosty Trees and Chena River

During the coldest months of winter, the hoarfrost covers the trees, even as the river remains thawed. Upstream from this location, there is a power plant which discharges warm water into the river - keeping it from freezing. But the moisture from the warmer water, when it meets the below-zero temps, covers the surrounding bushes and trees with a gorgeous cloak of white.
