The Polar Bear Explorers’ Club

All of a sudden, the sled rose up over the crest of a hill – and they came face to face with a white, sparkling, magnificent castle.
Countless spires and turrets rose up high into the sky, the frozen windows reflected back the sunlight, and the frost icing the turret roofs
sparkled at them like hundreds of tiny diamonds.
