The other day I was thinking about the old cherry tree on the grassy bald that dominates Daughton Park. I rambled on with a description of the harsh winters it has seen, thrived in, and now survives. Lo and behold, in section B of the Sunday Charlotte Observer there was an article about ice climbers at Daughton Park. Here's the link: http://www.charlotteobserver.com/local/story/1185703.html. The article includes a great photo of the ice on the road cut well below the Daughton Park Haiku tree. It's not Uray, CO, but, burrr!
We've often driven past this cut long after the ice climbing season is over. There is plenty of ice there for most of the winter.
