Only a little bit of ice left on the fringes now...

A little over a week has passed since my last visit (how did that happen??) and it seems like just the right amount of time to show noticeable change. Most of the snow has melted on the surrounding hillsides, but a decent fringe of ice remains, especially on the north-facing side of the brook.
upper falls (compare to March 29)
After a couple of warm days and some steady rain, the flow is high and the ice has been broken.

Very little in the way of development this past week. It got really cold again a few days after my last update, and I suspect some of it froze back up again. Today, the falls appeared just slightly more open than 8 days ago.
