Igloo in Townlands Park - 2003

This igloo was built the day before this picture was taken, but was two feet higher. Overnight it shrank as the snow melted.

It is the coolest Igloo, I have ever seen.

We helped build it and Holly, Rhys and Dylan look so cute.

This is NOT an Igloo.
This should actually be called a "Quinzy".

A "Quinzy" is made by hollowing out a pile of snow.

Whereas an Igloo is made from blocks of snow, laid in a spiral pattern, with no need to hollow anything out.

Nice shot though ! I loved making them as a kid.

Cheers !
