A 'Blast from the Past'

A sandsculpturist puts the finishing touches on a replica of a steam locomotive during last weekend's Sandblast Summer Arts Festival on the banks of the Snoqualmie River at Duvall's McCormick Park. The theme of this year's event was "Blast from the Past," a tribute to the railroads that provided service to the Valley in times past. Other sandsculptures sported Native American artwork and various animal carvings. The two-day festival included plenty of music and other entertainment.
