Travel theme: Frozen

Brrr! The temperatures have just plummeted round this way and it is now officially windshield-scraping season (or if you’re anything like me, write-on-your-frosty-windshield season).

And so, to keep things frosty, here are a few ice-cold photos from my travels, starting with this snow-decked rose braving the cold in Inwood Hill Park, New York.

Frozen deliciousness in the shape of Umpqua Black Licorice ice cream in Leavenworth.

And more frozen food, this time just a little too over-the-top sugary for my taste, but an experience nevertheless. Frozen cheesecake on a stick at the Folklife Festival in Seattle. (I prefer my cheesecake unfrozen, on a plate, in New York.)

A snow-capped squirrel holding his nuts (haha, yes I just re-read that) in Central Park.

Drifts of ice on the still waters of Reflection Lakes in front of Mount Rainier.

If the world seems cold to you, kindle fires to warm it. – Lucy Larcom

Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.    – Langston Hughes
