Day Mountain Hike on New Year's Day

We lazed around the house for most of New Year's Day, but the sunshine beckoned us out in the afternoon. (Well, it beckoned me, at any rate - the kids had to be bribed.) Day Mountain is a nice, easy hike, and you can go most of the way on the Carriage Trails (always a good option in winter when the ice makes rougher trails dangerous.)
The mountain was covered in frozen waterfalls and since the weather was warm, meltwater was flowing under the ice.

See the patches of lichen under the ice in this one?

The low afternoon sun made photography a challenge, but I couldn't resist the sparkling ice flows.
