Ice Castles

One of KC's nicknames is "The City of Fountains". There are over 200 in the region. Several of the modern fountains run year-round. During periods of extended cold weather like we often have this time of year these fountains can build some impressive ice formations.

These images are from the Northland Fountain. I went out this afternoon and the western skies cleared to provide nice contrasting lighting of the ice.

Here is a view of the entire fountain

You can see the size of the ice buildup by the man walking at the right.
