Ice Castles in Colorado

When I first moved to Colorado, I realized there would be a great deal of snow, but I never thought of what some people could actually do with all that frozen water. Brent Christensen, ice artist, patented an ice sculpting method, which he used to create this huge work of art in the form of frozen, solid ice in Silverthorne, Colorado.

Christensen’s art is great for travel because it has become a supreme tourist attraction. Visitors can spend hours exploring the ice castle’s majestic tunnels and caverns. What makes this attraction even more appealing, however, is the use of over 200 florescent lights after dark, creating a plethora of colors through the transparent ice walls.

This seems like a great idea for families traveling together. It’s cute, fun, easy, and cheap. Already adding it to the bucket.
