In case you haven’t heard, frigid temps—not to mention a full-on winter storm—have taken over the Northeast. The best thing to come from the frosty conditions? Magical photos of an icy Niagara Falls in upstate New York and Canada (although a WFH snow day deserves honorable mention).

If braving the elements for the chance to belt “Let it Go” near the scene that looks like a dreamy snow globe isn’t in the cards for you, you can just as easily get your Niagara Falls fix from the comfort of your warm hygge Zen den right now: I rounded up five of the most awe-inspiring Instagram photos of the winter wonderland.
