Backyard Tourism – Ice Castle

Last year Edmonton was the first Canadian home to an ice castle.  I kicked myself for not making time to check it out, so I made sure to get out this time around.

It. Was. Freaking. Magic.

Once the sun was mostly gone it started to feel like a movie set – just completely unreal. There are LED lights that have been frozen inside various spots, so in the dark it takes on another look. Of course that was when my battery died.

Now I have a good reason to go back!
