Winter Flow on High Falls

I haven't posted a picture of High Falls in a little while, so here's an update as to how the falls looks right now.  Throughout the second half of December the waterfall was freezing up nicely and only had one channel of running water at year's end.  Yesterday when I walked up there I was surprised to see 3 channels of running water again, only this time they were running over the top of the ice that had already formed.  

It's a little hard to see in this still photo, but there is a lot of running water in 3 different areas along the face of the waterfall.  I don't remember ever seeing it look like this before in January.  It's very interesting and hard to say how long it will last like this.  Who knows, since yesterday some of these channels of running water may have frozen over already.
