Notes: Charles Fayette McGlashan erected a monster icicle to try to entice train travelers to exit the train and come visit the curios and Donner Party artifacts he had accumulated in his Rocking Stone Tower. The icicle or cone is on the right side of the image and is difficult to see. In creating his monster icicle, McGlashan used what he learned to construct an Ice Palace in downtown Truckee. See other ICP images, specifically ICP0011 of McGlashan's first Ice Palace.
