Maybe it is because I grew up in the Midwest (with 4 definite seasons), but I like winter. I really do. It is calm, peaceful, cozy & reflective. So it is no surprise that I had a different perspective when it came to our recent visit to an ice hotel. It really was the beauty of all things winter. Sculpted, carved, illuminated...it was breathtaking.
The hotel uses no metal or wood structures, it is all packed snow. With tables, chairs, glasses even chandeliers carved from special reverse-osmosis ice shipped in from Montreal, the organic combination of hydrogen & oxygen collide into art.
In anytime of day, the hotel just glowed.
I'll be sharing more about our overnight stay & the rest of our trip to Quebec City, but I thought your Friday needed some winter beauty. Click on each image for a more detailed view.
