Ice Castle!

Laurie got out of work early last Monday and we decided to take a trip to Mayville to see this year's ice castle. We hadn't had the chance to go for the past few years.

This is a close-up of the ice blocks. They each weigh between 400 and 500 pounds.

It was a beautiful day to spend time outside. A little cold, but the sun was out.

While driving to Mayville, we had hardly seen any one ice fishing. This must have been a good spot for it. The ice fishers were all lined up across the lake.

They have been building the ice castles since 1987. (weather permitting) To find out more about it, click HERE.

We enjoyed our afternoon and being able to see the castle in person again. We had seen other peoples photos the past few years, but really liked going back again.
