I started off the MonthOFun with a fun activity!

I stood on the ice that was once Lake Okoboji but is now 18 inches solid ice with a group of hardy Iowegians!
And a plane flew over…..

And while we saw the plane, the plane also saw US!

The cardinal set a record turnout for the 3rd annual 2010 ArtsLIVE ECO Art People Project on West Lake Okoboji (just off the shoreline from Lakeside Lab).
205 men, women and children ventured out onto the ice and made the 110 foot cardinal on Miller’s Bay.
The event was held as part of the 30th annual U of O Winter Games.

The bird was designed by Chad Branham.
It was photographed by Judy Hemphill Photography and Midwest Flying Services, Incorporated.
