Duluth's Temporary City on Ice

Each winter a temporary city arises in full view of Duluth's docks and downtown. This city is different because it is built on ice instead of on ground.

It is not just the amount of trees, but the type of trees that make a difference. Just as going into Duluth's hills often involves a change…
