Ice

Twitter
It's a wonderful Friday again, and it's time for our Blogging for Fun Friday, where the topic is A to Z challenge. Though I don't get to join each week because of my schedule, but whenever I get the chance, I love to join. This week is for letter I, and since we just came back from our desert trip last week, I thought of posting something from our trip. While on our way to Kanab, Utah, from Zion National Park, we saw a water sprinkler where the wheels no longer turn because it was deep in ice already.

Iced Water Sprinkler in the Desert

Iced Water Sprinkler in the Desert (2 )
Probably, without the ice in the picture, this place would look warm because of the blue sky, the warm red rocky hills and the almost barren terrain. This picture was taken early morning where the air temperature was 22 degree Fahrenheit ( -5.6 degree Celsius ). It's no wonder why the water freezes as soon as it came out from the sprinkler.
And here is a picture of the road we took inside North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park.

  6. Beautiful! When I think of sprinklers, it is overflowing waters, but the image just indicate that frozen water could create a great scuplture!

    Though you may post sparsely, you produce great ones.

    I look forward for more of your vacation shots!

  17. The ice on the wheels now looks like stalagtides and stalamites. It is so hot here, I'd like to take some to make lemonade.

  18. Iced water in desert? now that's new! no need to explain how warm or cold that place could be, the ice can speak of it.

    How's everything Betchai?

  19. that's really interesting, I had never seen a water sprikler froze like that. I bet it must be really cold in the desert during winter.

  21. Never thought about problems like that! Beautiful, but probably not to the owner.

  22. Thought I recognized that area outside of Kanab.. it's probably under snow now from the storm that drenched us.. the temps at Springdale and Bryce were way below zero the other day... hard to believe if you've only been there in summer.
