Winter Carnival: snow statues creep up on campus

Unfortunately for those of you who can’t be here, we checked out Tech’s Winter Carnival in the evening, hoping to catch the free self dog rides that were on the schedule. We couldn’t find the sled dogs and snow was coming in the next day, so we tried our best to get some photos of the intricate details of the sculptures, like the tiny ice viewers in the Colosseum below. As you might figure out, the theme this year was something about places we’d like to go to escape Houghton’s winter. The scale might be hard to identify, but some of them are two stories high!

My photos are below. If you want to check out the professional shots, head over to Tech’s site.

Snow day today and tomorrow we head to the Porkies for Porkstravaganza. It’s going to be epic.
