MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO/WFLA) – Extremely cold weather brought out a beautiful sight in Minnesota in a frozen waterfall.

Minnehaha Falls frozen completely, all 53 feet of it, thanks to below-zero temperatures.

Some urban hikers ventured out onto the icy rocks to catch a glimpse of the view behind the fall.

Park rangers warn that they weren’t only risking their lives, but risking a citation, as climbing behind the rocks is illegal.
