MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – One of the most popular attractions in Minneapolis is also one of the most dangerous right now.
Minnehaha Falls is frozen and not safe, if you’re trying to walk around its base.
But it’s also a spectacular sight to see.
So much so that people are ignoring the “No Trespassing” signs and barricades, and walking down frozen steps and slippery trails to take pictures.
It’s icy yet irresistible.
Bill Wallace drove up from Burnsville to take some pictures.
“It is barricaded, but where there’s a will there’s a way,” he said.
This attraction to a frozen waterfall is so strong that people are consciously choosing to trespass.
“It is kind of other worldly, so to speak,” Wallace said. “It is something to behold, that’s for sure.”
