A unique - and spectacular - sight awaits you at Loon Mountain in Lincoln. Utah-based builder Brent Christensen and his crew have created a giant ice fortress that you can explore while visiting the mountain. It is roughly an acre in size and its tallest points reach about 25 feet high. You can walk through it during the day, but at night it comes alive with embedded multicolor lights that make the ice glow from within.
The castle was built with a system of sprinklers using the cold winter air to create, or "grow," giant icicles. Christensen works on the fortress continuously, crafting a free-form castle that's made of frozen stalagmites and stalactites.
Depending on weather, the Ice Castle should remain open through March and will be open for tours daily.
