SHIPSHEWANA — Sixteen tons of ice formed into 600-pound blocks served as the “canvas” for more than a dozen ice carvers at the annual Shipshewana Ice Festival.

The carvers worked Friday using chainsaws and other specialty tools to shape the chunks of ice into frozen art. The sculptures are displayed throughout the downtown area.

Young travelers say they enjoy taking selfies to preserve and curate travel memories while sharing experiences with friends. But some older travelers worry that spending too much time on social media can be a distraction from enjoying and learning about a place. (AP Photo/Susan Austin Photography)
