What's that?

We were walking up Clifford's hill today, and saw this.  According to Siri it's called needle ice.
It occurs when the ground is wet and the temperature drops below freezing. It looks like ice is growing up from the ground.  It's beautiful!!!
We learned something new today. We'd seen it before but didn't know what to call it.  Now we do:  needle ice.
I hope you see some in your hikes around the mountain.

It’s very noticeable. About 2-3 inches tall. It looks like the ground is exploding up.
