A Winter Horseback Riding Vacation, Fairbanks, Alaska
Where did the horses go in Alaska? I was recently in Fairbanks, Alaska to see the World Ice Art Championships and visit the Chena Hot Spring Resort. Obviously, I was there in the winter, so no chance for a horseback riding vacation in Alaska. While I wasn’t able to go on a horseback riding holiday, I did manage to find some horses in Alaska. These horses, however, were sculpted out of water!
While no one is expecting to turn water into wine, twenty-one teams descended onto Fairbanks, Alaska to turn water into ice sculptures this February – March, 2010. Not only did I visit the World Ice Art Championships in Fairbanks, I was able to see the Aurora Ice Museum at the Chena Hot Springs Resort, 60 minutes outside of Fairbanks. Steve Brice, a 13 time world ice sculpting champion, operates the Aurora Ice Museum with his wife, Heather, a four-time world ice sculpting champion.
