Ice Castles 2 - "Wonderful" Theme

by Darlene Foster February. 20, 2012 1630 views

This is the first year that these ice castles have been produced for the public! They make 4 to 5 thousand icicles per night and then fuse them into place using water hoses that are imbedded into the ice! They will continue this process all winter and the castles will be the tallest at the end of the season, when it will then melt away. It was melting a litte, during the day we were there, as it was a very warm day, but of course freezes solid again during the night. Think I'll enter this on the weekly theme “wonderful”, as I thought it really was wonderful!

P.S. If you missed Ice Castles 1 please look back!

This is looking up through the roof!
