Any more pics of Ricketts in the winter?

The last time I was there hiking when with ice on the trails, it spooked me. There was ice on some of the rock/ledge steps, and it was completely inconsistent. Some of the smoother rock surfaces on the Glen Leigh trail had odd icing patterns to say the least. In the flat light of an early fall day, I had trouble telling a thin layer of ice from the different colors of the rock. Misjudge one time and you'd go sliding down. I back tracked whan I saw a thin layer of ice on some wooden steps.

I always thought the warning signs there, (Properly equipped and experienced hikers -- minimal equipment includes crampons, and rope- ice axes are recommended) was overkill, but now I believe it.

Ricketts can be treachorous in winter....

Have quite a few more shots that BWillsie took. Will post some in a few days.
