Herd of Elk gathering in the cold. Taken about a 1/2 hour drive from where I live on a day when the trees
were covered with hoar frost, an extremely thick frost that looks like it is almost dripping off the
branches. The temperature is about -20°C. An ironically beautiful challenge to survival.

- (no link) - I recently took a photo in Idaho of this unusual "horror frost". Any information on what causes this type of frost ? I will send you a photo if you like, as I live on the Payette River.
- spunwithtears - Thanks for your comment Dave. I did a bit of research and it looks like I initially misspelt the name for hoar (horror) frost. Apparently there are at least two types of frost: rime and hoar. Rime frost forms quickly but hoar frost grows slowly and coats the trees and other things in long fur-like ice crystals.
