Hiram College

Please join us on Sunday, January 23 for an exciting ice hike at Nelson Ledges. The group will meet in the Nelson Ledges parking lot and the hike will last from 1-3 p.m.

Explore the crevasses, shelter caves, and rock bluffs that provide the setting for a variety of winter ice formations.  Frozen waterfalls, ice stalagmites and stalactites, rime frost, needle ice and perhaps ice flowers are all part of this winter geologic wonderland.  The geology is both ancient and contemporary, rocks formations millions of years old frosted with ice formations that may be only hours old.

This course is difficult and slippery.

The cost is $3 for members of Friends of the Field Station and Hiram College Faculty/Staff, and $5 for nonmembers. This event is free for Hiram College students.
