Saw these ice formations near a canal path in Nevada City, CA last week while walking. Forgot my camera that day, so I can't prove it.Cool, aren't they?
Yes, they are cool indeed. Cold, in fact! I'm glad someone besides me got to see such an interesting natural phenomenon! Thanks for commenting Intrepid!
I think this is called "needle ice" and yes, the pores in the compact clayey soil are slowly pushing the ice out... like a spaghetti maker.
Thanks Kathleen. Good to know!
