Lower Falls Ice Bridge
$100.00 – $1,500.00
During the six months of steady
below-freezing temperatures in Yellowstone, the mist produced by the Lower Falls swirls around and freezes to the rock walls and forms a gigantic ice bridge over the river below. Hundreds of tons of ice accumulate, and depending on the length and severity of the cold, this ice sculpture can grow to over 200 feet high reaching back up toward the lip of the Falls which is over 300 feet above the river. Growing in slow motion and defying gravity, it builds a temporary mountain straddling one of the major rivers of North America.
