Mashable asked the data miners at Google Trends to share what costumes people are searching the most, and unsurprisingly, Queen Elsa tops the list. She's joined by a few of her Frozen castmates, and a whole slew of familiar faces in the pop culture world. So, while that Guardian's of the Galaxy costume may seem like a really awesome idea, thousands of others are planning to wear the same thing.

The concrete footings, iron supports and big wooden planks were removed and large rock deflectors were placed against the stone wall to help support it just below the dam. Wetmore resident Jim Neely submitted a proposal for the project back in the spring to the Park’s Board of Directors. Neely proposed a three-part project which would take place over several years to enhance the fishing in the stream. The project was approved by the board of directors and has received little opposition. The site of the project used to be a popular swimming hole but has been used less frequently in recent years.
