Chainsaw Art

Saturday, Sandy and I took Alex for a hike at William B. Umstead State Park.  From the last parking area on the Crabtree Creek side of the park, we went down towards the boat house and then hiked along the gravel roads to Reedy Creek Multi-Use Trail.  From here, we followed the multi-use trails to make a big loop around the park.  As we were finishing up at Graylyn Trail, we went left a short ways to see the chainsaw art.

After a large red oak had fallen, two artists from Gatlinburg, Tennessee came out and used chainsaws to make a beautiful sculpture from the enormous downed tree.  It's hard to believe such intricate detail could be carved with a chainsaw.

We got some pictures and then took Sycamore Trail back to the start.
