Floes and flows

A walk along Seven-Mile Creek down to the lake brought us these stunning photos: a strongly flowing creek because of all the melting snow over the last few days as the temperatures have gone above freezing and thick (6-10") floes of ice that wash 4-5 miles down the creek and pile up when they hit the sides or some other impediment. Can you tell that the large one in the center is actually balancing atop a downed tree? Wild!
