A man-made 10-foot waterfall in St. Charles, Illinois is home to a cozy grotto for behind-the-falls viewing. During winter, the waterfalls start to freeze and beautiful ice formations occur in the grotto, aka "pond cave." For more information on Aquascape, visit www.aquascapeinc.com.
The waterfalls are partially frozen over during winter.
Ed Beaulieu of Aquascape stands in the entrance of the grotto, aka "pond cave."
The entrance to the grotto shows the intricate rock work pieced together by hand by a group of Certified Aquascape Contractors.
From inside the grotto, looking at the backside of the waterfalls. During summer, you can walk through the falls.
Inside the grotto, you can see the same intricate rock work chiseled and pieced together by hand.
