Hey everyone...another busy weekend. On Friday we went up to the mountains to Breckenridge to see the annual snow sculpture display. We usually go on Saturdays but this year we went on Friday because mom is off work now. We got to see how the artists do the work. They start out with giant blocks of compacted snow and make the neatest statues out of them. No power tools are allowed so they are made totally by hand. There were a few ice sculptures that did allow power tools but they were just for decoration, not in the competition. It was a sunny day and I got to walk around alot, if my feet got cold mom picked me up till I wiggled to get back down. We all had fun!
In the car and ready to go
The mountains were very pretty
The tunnel that goes through the Continenal Divide...It is very long
Yay...here we are at Breck
Time to go see some snow statues
The whole pack
First, huge blocks of snow
Then the plan
Time to create
We saw lots of the sculptures getting worked on
We didn't stay overnight this time so we didn't see the final statues but mom found some pictures of a few of them
There were some ice carvings as well
We stopped for a while and enjoyed the sun before we headed back to the car
Mom and Dad enjoyed the snowy scenery on the way home, I...was tired.
I hope all of you pupsters had a wonderful and restful weekend.
Until Next Time,
