[Ice Festival Grounds, Wilderness Walk]
The ground seems unusually hard beneath each step, the slickness beneath the blanketing layer of snow betrays the iced over river for what it truly is. Having been exposed to freezing cold temperatures for quite some time, the ice is very sturdy. Nearby, a crowd is gathered beneath a wintry-blue satin banner, which hangs over a huge hole carved deep into the frigid channel. You also see a swimming course, a swimming event standings board, a carved ice block, a swimming event sign up list and a swimming rules sign.
Obvious paths: north, south.
