MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota — Extreme cold brought about a beautiful sight in Minnesota: A frozen waterfall.

We’re talking about 53-foot Minnehaha Falls, which completely froze, thanks to below-zero temperatures.

A  lot of people came out to see the phenomenon for themselves, and some even ventured out onto the icy rocks to catch a glimpse.

But park rangers say that the curious onlookers are not only risking their lives, they’re risking a citation, since climbing behind the rocks is illegal.
