Saranac Lake Ice Palace 2011
Robin Johnson from Rainbow Lake worked on the Saranac Lake Winter Carnival ice palace for the first time this year. Although he had never worked with ice before, he became intrigued with the challenge. He created several carvings that adorn the interior of the palace as well as the two dates on the front wall and knight sentries guarding the entrance to the palace.
Ice palace workers honored Robin with their "Rookie of the Year" award for the unique quality he brought to this year's palace.
