The snow & ice, especially at night, made for some impressive antics.

Cracked ice at Umstead Park Lake
From the first snow in 2018. This was taken on the far side of the lake if you leave the trail and continue to hike around the lake.

Closeup inside my 'Grenade' hat
This is a closeup of the inside of my 'Grenade' hat. I was hiking in the snow and ice at Umstead Park when I realized how bright things were because of sun reflecting off the snow. I took my hat off, placed my camera inside it, and pointed it towards the sun & took this shot.

From when there was 4-8 inches of snow in Raleigh in January, this ice was frozen on a branch in my yard.
