Hello from the far northern part of California. My name is Lori and I live in a little place called Scott Valley, just below the Oregon border. I so enjoy looking at all the beautiful photos here everyday on this site. They inspire me to try and improve my skills. Any helpful criticism is always appreciated as there are so many here I admire and learn from - just by viewing the amazing photos.Thanks for sharing your pointers and thanks for sharing your little corner of the world too!

Caption: A large shield has been installed at the ball field in Fort Jones to aid in keeping the sun off of the igloo. The father of one of the young men attempting to finish this giant structure was at the ball field this morning chunking up more snow and ice so it would be ready to form into more blocks. He said that there were approximately 700 block in place, and each weighs in at around 70 pounds. They have about 125-150 to go. You can see it is heading into the dome stage now.
