My wife and I were traveling north on State Route 42 in Virginia at the Bath/Rockbridge county line. We spotted these icicles with unusual colors emerging from the rock face next to the road. At first we thought the colors might be real, but the blue, pink, and yellow looked a little unnatural. Sure enough, one of the other "viewers" stopped at the roadside had a bucket of dye and was squirting the colors onto the icicles. She said that this was done every winter when icicles form at this spot!
