Description

Thanks to Paul Wiegman for suggesting these cliffs for icicle hunting.

To get here, walk to the north end of the Route 381 bridge over Meadow Run, follow the faint path immediately to the southeast and uphill through the rhododendrons, then traverse below the rock cliff for a few hundred meters. You'll pass www.gigapan.org/gigapans/40211/ along the way.

The gigapan unit is tilted up at about a 45 degree angle, which explains the unusual perspective.

    One of my friends had the great idea of adding additional wire to our head lamps so that we could put the batteries in a jacket pocket next to our body. It worked very well when it was cold. I joked with Ben about creating a cover for the gigapan with pockets to insert hand warmers ;)

    Layers. The toughest part was keeping my fingers warm after handling the (metal) tripod & Gigapan Imager box. Even with glove liners on, my fingers got quite cold. I also saw the batteries getting weaker than I'm used to in warm weather, so I had them under the foot heater on the drive to Ohiopyle, and kept the spares close to my body, in my pockets, to keep them as warm as possible, while in the field.
