Photo detail

Cindy Ruzicka stands in the backyard of her home, which backs up to the wetlands between Honeysuckle Lane and U.S. Highway 40 in west Steamboat Springs. The fence she in leaning on is 6 feet tall, and the ground is covered with several inches of ground water that has frozen into a thick layer of ice.
