Photo Of The Day – Ice Castle At Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise + 3 More

Title: Ice Castle At Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise

Location: Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada, North America (51°25’3″ N 116°13’6″ W)

Description: Back in 2010 British Columbia hosted the Winter Olympics. The fever spread across the land, far and wide, even over to Alberta where the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, situated perfectly on the shores of that magnificent lake, had a passel of ice sculptures crafted.

The largest by far was this ice castle with the Fairmont’s logo plastered across a maple leaf.

I still wonder how long it took for all this ice to melt. Mind you, the ice under the castle probably melted first, which would have been cool to watch.
