February is usually not a busy time for New York's Letchworth State Park. However, this year the park has been inundated with visitors trying to get a glimpse of its new albeit temporary attractions - an ice volcano and two frozen waterfalls.

What makes them special is that neither will be here when spring arrives. The "volcano" is the result of water from the park's 50-foot tall pressure-fed fountain freezing in its tracks, due to the record low temperatures the area has experienced this year.

Similarly, the park's 107-foot middle falls, and the 70-foot upper falls normally sparkling blue waters now resemble beautifully carved snow sculptures. What makes the sight even more mesmerizing is the river that continues to make its way through a narrow channel over the upper falls.
