Ice Castles

Saturday afternoon we trekked up to Loon Mountain in New Hampshire to see the Ice Castles before Spring comes and melts them away. It was, in fact, the last day they were open to the public, and they were a little drippy and the icicles were concerning. We had driven out of sunny, 50°F weather down south in Massachusetts into storm clouds and frigid air in the White Mountains, but the girls enjoyed it so much, it was worth it in the end. I have no idea how they made this, but it was really impressive!














This was a slide that came down from another "room" in the castle. There were several little tunnels and grottos and thrones cut in the ice. Classical music played over loudspeakers which Kate said was for The Ball. At night they put on colored lights, but we didn't stay that long. The girls thought it was so fun!





One last photo, yeah right.

Really the last photo!

When we got home, Grandpa made a fire and we had s'mores!
