Ely Winterfest Snow Sculpting Symposium

Last week, I traveled to Ely, MN for their Winter Festival and more specifically to participate in the International Snow Sculpting Symposium. I teamed up with four others to carve "Dino Fight!" We spent three and a half long days carving and shoveling to create this piece. It turned out pretty swell.

A team photo: Brian, Heather, me, Sarah, and Jaymie.

And here are a few of my favorites from others.

Adding to my experience, my friend and teammate Sarah let me stay at her very quaint, little cordwood cabin.

Although I didn't have much time or energy left over I did make it out for a couple hikes with Betty and Holiday.
