Explore an Otherworldly Ice Castle

When I explored the Dillon, Colorado Ice Castle last Saturday, I transcended into another world. Surrounded by frozen water, this new fantastical planet swept me away to a frigid continent where textures and colors combined. A perfect environment for a broken toe.

My feet sank into the strange new surface like quicksand. It sucked at my boots as I explored. I slipped on its mercurial membrane. Slogged through the dry slush.

So many rooms awaited us.

The walls like frozen, encrusted gemstones.

I was grateful for the cold night. Looking up I wondered what torture spring might bring.

I viewed rooms of icy royalty.

And a fountain to remind us of the chosen element.

Multi-colored majesty in mad patterns, textures, spikes, and relief.

Funny thing. Most of the guests craved hot chocolate afterward. It warmed them in the chill.

But, ever since I toured the castle, I’ve had the strangest craving.

There are a lot more ice castle photos to come!

    1. There was so much to see and do. I had to divide the adventure into two blog posts. I actually got lost a few times, although I’m directionally challenged. We had trouble finding the exit! More coming soon….
      Thanks for sharing on Twitter, John!

  1. Nice photos Susie! Scary slogging through it. I leave the following link hoping that someone may wonder where we came from, what we are doing here and where we are going.

    It looked to me like you are offering a new version of “Use me and Abuse me” by offering bloggers to talk to each other. Thanks, you are always offering something for us writers out here.
