A Stonehenge Made Entirely Of Ice Was Built In America

Here’s a formula for you: Take Stonehenge, remove the whole “mysterious origins” thing and minus a lot (and we mean a lot) of degree Celsius.

Presumably because they were bored of building snowmen, a group of five friends from Lake Mills, Wisconsin decided to spend a couple of weekends constructing a gorgeous, other-worldly version of Stonehenge made entirely out of ice. Drew McHenry, Kevin Lehner, Quinn Williams, Alec Seamars and Patrick Shields first started experimenting with antique ice cutting equipment a few years ago just for fun, but since then they’ve tried their collective hand at building ice sculptures.


This year’s Rock Late “Icehenge” is built using rectangular blocks of ice cut out of the lake’s frozen surface and “glued” together with a mixture of snow and water. Each of the pillars weighs a whopping 140 kilograms, while the pieces that lay across the top of the circle weigh 90 kilograms each. How’s that for a snow day activity?

The Icehenge has since been removed due to safety issues around warming temperatures but we think it is better to have built and lost than never to have built at all, right?
