I spent a few morning hours at nearby Linn Run state park, PA. It was about 28° upon arrival upstream from the Adam’s falls parking area. The air seemed warm compared to the much colder low teens I’ve been out balancing in recently. I was anxious to get to balancing stones. I found a spot near a pool below some currents that seemed to speak to me. I set my kit down and noticed a very cool ice formation in a small puddle of water beside my packs resting location. It appeared to be the imprint of a fern, but upon closer inspection it revealed to be the early formation of ice crystals. I shot a few photos and started selecting stones to balance. Fortunately I did, because the air temperature warmed up enough to turn the crystals back into liquid form erasing the beautiful formation.
After about an hour of working my chosen stones, I was able to assemble this temporary stone balance sculpture.
