[photos] Christmas tree shopping

This morning, the_child, lasirenadolce, Mother of the Child and I went Christmas tree shopping at Lee Farms in Tualatin. Highly recommended in part for the fact that they have the best Christmas tree stands I have ever seen in my life.

Here we is among the artificial forest of the pre-cut. (We eventually got a u-pick out of the fields.)

While walking over to the u-pick fields, I noticed a strange ice formation in the mud beneath my feet.

The physics of this are non-obvious to me, except in the sense that there seem to have been small columns of water at or just beneath the soil surface.

As usual, more at the Flickr set
