Christmas in Ice, North Pole, Alaska


The City of North Pole, Alaska, holds an ice carving competition. The entries are displayed in ice park. The 2015 theme: Christmas in Ice. The best time to arrive for a visit is just before the sun goes down (about 2:30 pm) so you can see the sculptures in daylight and in the dark.

My sister Ruth and niece Amelia. who live in North Pole, were with me in the park.

The ice park is adjacent to Santa Clause House, an institution in North Pole.

Everyone comes to have their picture with Santa, including many of the Japanese tourists who  flock to the Fairbanks area each winter to view the Northern Lights.

Thanks. One of my sisters live in Alaska and I go for the Christmas holidays when I can. It is beautiful with all the snow. It is also lovely in the summer.
