Ice Age Returns to Slovenia: Freezing Rain Encases Slovenian Mountain in Ice [PHOTOS]

Horizontal, snow-covered icicles? Have you ever seen or even heard of that? Severe weather chaser and photographer Marko Korosec captured images of these odd icicles during a brutal mountain trek in Slovenia. Earlier this month, Korosec climbed Mount Javornik and Mount Nanos after three days of freezing fog and rain.

What Korosec witnessed after this storm was the incredible sight of wind-swept ice engulfing the entire region: trees, roads, powerlines, lookout towers, and more, completely encased in a hard mixture of rime and black ice.

Because of high winds during the freezing fog, the ice formed spears that extended horizontally. Korosec describes finding ice spikes on the tower stretching more than three feet.
