I said the ninja cat would be my last post until after Christmas, but my cousin sent this link from North Pole, Alaska. She used to live there and misses it terribly. The ice sculptures are very cool. This is from her email. I hope you enjoy them.
"This is just down from my house. Click on the links to see some beautiful ice carvings. I don't know why they don't have all the ice carvings pictured, but the ones they do show you will enjoy. There is also a link to see how they harvest the ice; the pond is only a mile from my house.
In March Fairbanks has a much bigger one, I will send the link to that one when it opens."
