Reflection of Stonehenge rises on Wisconsin lake

There were surely more than a few double-takes done by people passing Wisconsin’s Rock Lake when they laid eyes on a brilliant — and utterly unexpected — version of Stonehenge.

Some people dream of being an astronaut, some of starting the next Google, but four friends from Lake Mills, Wisconsin dreamed of erecting a little bit of ancient England, stateside.

After discovering some old ice-cutting equipment, Drew McHenry, Kevin Lehner, Quinn Williams, Alec Niedringhaus, and Patrick Shields decided to see if they could make a little frosty magic.

Their plans for raising an ice version of the monument last winter fell through when the weather didn’t cooperate, but they got lucky this year and pieced it together using blocks weighing between 200 and 300 pounds in only two weekends.

Thought it wasn’t allowed to stand for safety reasons, it’s inspiring to see that big dreams like this can still come true.
