The weather has been unseasonably warm, a bad thing for ice carvings. On Friday it was we had a high of 46ºF, a freakishly high and wrong temperature for this time of year. During the day the organizers wrapped Tyvek around the sculptures and stashed dry ice around the 'regular' ice.
One of the best things about the Ice Park is the Kid's Park. Slides, mazes, tops, and other fun things for kids and non-grown-ups to enjoy. If you were presented with a slide 20 feet tall and over 60 feet long, all of ice, would you be able to resist? Yeah, I didn't think so.
I'm a lousy photographer, but I tried to capture shots of the sculptures I liked. The link above has pictures and web cam links. The link below goes to my Picasa album of our time in the park this year, I hope you enjoy the pictures. Oh, Michelle - I took a picture of the penguins just for you. :)
