Picture StoryThe high desert of the Colorado Plateau experiences all seasons, and nothing, to me, validates how cold it can get as when the Colorado River freezes over. I mean bank to bank and almost thick enough to walk across (but don't try it). When conditions are right it usually takes a few weeks of prolonged cold for the ice to form. From my vantage point the side of the highway I looked down to see full ice, broken in a few places, yet still frozen bank to bank.
