Behind the Frozen Minnehaha Falls

This is what looks like behind the Minnehaha Falls in Minnesota, Minneapolis when it is frozen. This can be found near the entrance to Minnehaha Park, a 193-acre park divided into two main portions: an upper section above the falls which is kept trimmed and maintained like many other city parks, and the lower section which is largely left in a natural state and popular for free climbing due to the steep terrain.
Due to the extremely cold temperatures during the winter months, the waterfall is known to freeze, creating a dramatic cascade of ice that can last well into Spring. The falls are located in Minnehaha Creek, a tributary of the Mississippi River, close to where the creek meets back with the Mississippi.
