3rd Grade Field Trip

On Mondays I volunteer in my son's class for a little bit in the afternoon. Yesterday they went on a field trip during my time to volunteer. They walked downtown to view the Ice Sculptures and have hot chocolate at a local coffee house.

This is the second year Alamosa has had Ice Sculptures downtown. I think the idea is to get people downtown during the winter. It has been so warm here this winter that only 3 of the 6 statues were still standing, the three on the south side of the street which are in the shade all day.

The theme this year is wildlife.




The bear is showing signs of melting.

These have only been standing 10 days. Last year the theme was railroad and the sculptures on both sides of the street hung around into March. Of course, for the one hour we walked around downtown it was cloudy, cold and snowed!

So cool. I love ice sculptures! At least you can be grateful it's been that warm this year!
