Winter Carnival Underground

WINTER CARNIVAL UNDERGROUND

Ever wonder what is going on in the mines during the winter months?  My curiosity was answered when I ran across photos of some beautiful ice sculptures only Mother Nature could make.  It doesn’t get any better than that.  Take a look and see if you agree.

    Cool! The Arctic Coal Company also had interesting winter interiors in their coal mines in Arctic Spitsbergen. Check out MS018-001-004 in the online collection. The delicate frosty interior is a strange contrast to the dirty black coal of the mine.
