Ice Castles of North Woodstock, NH

Pam and I headed up north to see the Ice Castles in North Woodstock, NH.  We made reservations several weeks prior.  As we arrived, we saw people without tickets being turned away as it was sold out.

There were lots of people walking through the maze of ice formations.  There was a slide we didn’t go down as we didn’t bring snow pants or a change of clothes.

We had fun walking through the castle.  I took several pictures.

There were ice cycles everywhere.  It reminded me of stalactites I would see in the caves growing up out west.  I went through a tunnel and took this picture looking straight up at the ice cycles.
It is a pretty area with mountains nearby.

There was also a short trail going through the woods.  At night the whole place is lit up.  We decided not to stay until dark.

Once we left, we decided to eat at the Woodstock Inn Brewery.  It was quite busy but had several dining areas so we didn’t have to wait long.  Big menu.

I ordered the Pastrami Ruebenski with onion rings.  Pam got the Shroom Express and sweet potato fries.  Both were excellent.  I would get the same thing again.  Turns out they are known for their onion rings and their fries.  Pam said the sweet potato fries were the best she has ever had … no idea what their secret is.

We walked through town through some of the shops. 

Instead of taking the highway home, we decided to take Old Rt 3 home.  It was fun driving the winding roads through small towns.

It was a fun day trip ...
