Ice Sculptures in Fairbanks, Alaska

Last time we showed you some snow sculptures from Breckenridge, Colorado.   My Alaska cousin, Eider Duck, sent us some photos of ice sculptures from the ice park in Fairbanks, Alaska.   We think these pictures are really great.

This are carved from ice blocks from a pond in Fairbanks.  The ice is so clear!

Lights of different colors really enhance the sculptures

The first stage of ice carving is done with a chain saw.   The final stages with small hand tools, some power tools, for the perfect final touches.
