Snow Sculptures

Artists recently completed another display of incredible snow sculptures in Whiteside Park in Ely. The Snow Sculpting Symposium is part of the Ely Winter Festival.

This snow sculpture is "They Called the Wind Mariah," by Sherry Rovig, Nick Lee, and Dianne Goodwin.

Three days of warm weather and drizzle after the carving means that photos like this one are about all that's left of the most ornate sculptures.

Note: Jason is on trail guiding a dogsled camping trip this week. This is a previously scheduled post.
