The Ice Park in Winona is quite a beautiful thing to see!
Women and men climb these ice waterfalls using pick axes and special footwear with spikes and harnesses and ropes. It is quite a thing to watch. The fellow that heads it up tells me that I could do it--it's just like Yoga, he says. I think I'll keep my Yoga on the earth not climbing a sheet of ice--though it looks amazing!
Last weekend when I went up to see it, they had turned off the water and he said the the falls were the largest that they have been this season.

Follow the signs--easy path to the ice park.
And if we hike to the top of the ice park here are some views:
This is snowy Sugarloaf. That can be hiked to as well!
This picture is a little clearer--but the day was over cast. Still great to get out and explore and find wonder.
