International ice sculptures enticed me to wake extraordinarily early to join the Skrastins Outdoor Club day in Lake Louise. While the others energetically strapped on snow shoes and skis, Candace and I drifted in an out of the Chateau.

Celebrating the beauty of nature was a theme in the sculptures, which many interpreted in quite human-centric ways. The backdrop of the frozen, snow-covered lake and the craggy mountains added energy to the superb technical skills.

Wonderfully, the light changed from moment to moment. Clouds were heavy and towering, yet they parted for the sun to blaze through, creating a vision of ethereal fantasy high above us.

We have ice sculptures in Ottawa, also, but usually either with a deep freeze or a race against melting. And never do we have such a wonderful setting.
