Rock Lake Icehenge in Lake Mills Wisconsin on January 27, 2016

I got the report from a friend that the “Icehenge” on Rock Lake has returned in 2016. This location is on Rock Lake in Lake Mills Wisconsin. What an awesome piece of art and put together well by a group of local artists and craftsmen. It was similar to the Icehenge the group put up last year in 2015. The ice was actually cut near the structure, dragged over to the site and the upper pieces muscled up on top.  One person I ran into there today that helped in this construction of this event told me there was a small structure that is put up near Icehenge a couple hundred feet away called an “altar” if I heard it correct. Images of the altar are below. When standing in the middle of the Icehenge as the sun sets on Friday the 29th, the sun should set on the top of the altar and light should point to the middle of the Icehenge location. He said the math was done on this, and if that actually happens is yet to be seen. It was a fun photo op for a few minutes on a cold and windy day out on the lake. Thanks Paula!
