33/365 - Statue Building

A huge snow statue being built.
Click the photo to see it on Flickr.

As some of you may know, I'm a graduate student at Michigan Tech, which is located in the way, way, WAY north end of Michigan. One of the things that makes Tech unique is our Winter Carnival, held early each February. One of the main features of Carnival is the snow statues. Statues fall into two categories: all-nighter (built in one night -- tomorrow night!), and month-long -- like this one, made over the past month, by students just like me. They're amazing. This statue is still being built, and I'm planning to document it over the next few days. If you click through to my Flickr page, you can mouse over the photo to see the notes -- they'll help understand the scale of this statue!
