Saturday, February 24, 2018:  While Mark and Paula were in Stillwater, MN, they noticed this lady dressed for the weather.
Upon further inquiry they leaned she was about to go into an ice castle.
So, when in Stillwater, do as Stillwater people do!  The Dynamic Duo went in.

Young and old alike were headed into the place.
Paula was impressed by huge walls and columns of ice.
The place filled up with hundreds, all wanting to learn the mystery of an ice castle.
Mark was impressed by tons of ice hanging over his head.
Paula liked the frozen flowers.  How do they do that?
There were windows of clear ice too.  Good for a photo op.
Mark decided to try the ice slide.  It was a harrowing experience on a hard surface. 
Paula said, "I'll show you," and she loved it even if it did soak her to the skin on the back side. 
Mark found himself surrounded by young ladies who insisted on having a picture taken with him.  Lucky ladies!
More of the frozen flowers.  Paula would like to learn how to do that.
Then there was a water fountain in an iceberg. 
A wedding photographer was there getting images of a young couple.  They were happy together.
Inside an ice room with some sunlight just showing through the top.  Nicely done.

Quote of the day:    An amazing place.   Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
