We’ve seen the astonishing frozen Sea Caves on the shore of Lake Superior. Now let’s check out a manmade winter wonderland on the other side of the continental divide. This fantastic frozen fortress is the Ice Castle located in Midway, Utah. These enchantingly photographs were taken by Salt Lake City-based photographer Ben Kuhns.
Handmade from over 20,000,000 pounds of ice, the Ice Castle is a network of carved footpaths that wind through towering glacial formations, caverns, archways, and maze-like tunnels. At night the castle is illuminated by multicolored LED lights, which serve to heighten the already mysterious and magical atmosphere.

Happy Norse Apocalypse everyone! Remember, if you see a giant devilish wolf roaming about, resist the urge to pet it and instead remain safely indoors.
