Here's an interesting Site and read, for those of us that like the out of the way, or more Bizzare Stories. It seems somebody decided to create a piece of Artwork entirely out of Ice, in Alaska. He jury rigged a system to spray water, and at below 0 degree temperatures it froze into a free form sculpture.
The Following is Quoted from the Sites and Sculptures' Creator
1 February. 106 feet high. "It did not warm up. It is 30 below 0. To climb hard brittle ice at 30 below, is to get better stories than this one. But I had a brilliant idea. This was gonna make things easy. I got an old crossbow from a friend who found it in the dumpster. I made a bolt (a crossbow arrow) from an old broken ski pole section. I glued a carriage bolt in the tip for weight. The ski pole had been broken by Tyson Flaharty, a hot local, University of Alaska, get-out-of-the-way ski racer who does international races and breaks poles. I taped some 550 cord (parachute suspension line, little cord) onto it, to shoot over the top of the ice, to pull a climbing rope over, to anchor it, to climb the rope with ascenders, to get to the top even at 30 below, and add more pipe. This was gonna be too easy. "
ALSO "You should see what that particular array of icicles does to the onboard radar in military jets known to prowl the pipeline corridor. The flight pattern for over-the-pole commercial airliners landing at Fairbanks International crosses directly overhead. At least they figured it out, and have the good sense to veer off course when they get close. The news media is only looking at the website."
