The Infinite Splendor of Alaska's Frozen Waterfall
Alaska's famous frozen waterfall is a naturally evolved structure that has remained frozen for many years, despite the influences of climatic weather changes. It is located on the Seward highway in Turnagain Arm. The frozen waterfall draws curious tourists and onlookers who often stop by the highway and gaze at its beautiful icy formations. Many years ago, the frozen structure was once a rapid free flowing waterfall that would cascade down the steep slopes. However, given the icy disposition of Alaska, the waterfall succumbed to the cold weather and has remained a frozen static landmass ever since. A local legend states that the world would come to an end if the waterfall had to defrost and flow once again. In recent years, the site has become a favorite among rock climbers and adventure sports enthusiasts who often look upon it as a challenge to straddle the top of the waterfall. This acrylic fridge magnet depicts a captivating image of the frozen waterfall and is an excellent souvenir to remind you of your trip to Alaska.
