Chasing frozen waterfalls….

Nice quiet hike to Fletcher’s Cascade. I didn’t expect too many on the trail since it’s a weekday. While I was photographing the frozen falls, Jack Dorsey showed up and I got some photos of him soloing the lower section of Fletcher’s Cascade as well. Jack was also there to take photos of the upper section of Fletcher's Cascade. Here's his photos from his SmugMug page.
