Ice can do interesting things to the landscape and change the way we perceive our surroundings.  Suddenly our daily commute can become dangerous, or our favorite waterfall can become the perfect spot for a day of ice climbing.  Everything from cold temperatures after rain or snow to freezing fog which can create hoar frost can turn our surroundings into a winter wonderland.  Here are 10 photos of Oregon frozen over.

Fun Fact: Hoarfrost and Rime Frost happen when water molecules in the air freeze to an exposed surface.  It often happens on cold foggy mornings.  Many parts of Oregon experience hoarfrost throughout the winter, leaving the landscape white, icy, and eerily beautiful for days at a time.
