Saturday found us in Midway at the Ice Castles! Pretty impressive eh?
We watched a documentary on ice climbing on Friday night, so Scott was especially excited. Can I just say photographing ICE is reeeealllly hard? Like, Really hard. I am proud to say I shot in manual the entire day. There were LOTS of overexposed pics, and a few good ones (pictured here). I thought the next few turned out pretty cool. There were ice tunnels and here's what it looked like inside. Can you see someone hiding? The man who creates these "harvests" ~2,000 icicles each day to add to his creation. There are spouts of water running throughout the castles to keep it frozen even on sunny days. Here is the harvesting: He helped pay for 2 sons' missions from last years proceeds and will pay for his daughters wedding this year! Cool, huh? ($5/adult)
Happy Valentines Day :)
XOXO, Scott and Stef
