    Ice formations adorning trees turned a northern Chinese city into a winter wonderland. The stunning scenery, captured in the city of Ergun in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, shows a layer of snow and ice covering the trees and grounds. The phenomenon is known as rime ice, which occurs when ice forms on the outside of objects such as trees when water in cold fog freezes.
