I climbed an ice tower!

Whitehorse has the only permanent (well, permanent in the winter) ice climbing facility in the world. Every year, they hook up some hoses onto a frame, and leave them running until they freeze. Then they teach people how to climb safely on the tower. I was so scared of falling off (even though we were in harnesses) and sooo proud when I climbed the tower! Seamus got some ice shards in his face, and got a cool icy scar. It was a lovely day, and afterwards we went to the hot springs and lay in the warm water in-between the snowy mountains, with the sun beating down on us..aww it was lovely.
