Since there are no signs pointing to the correct place for the art we looked at a couple of different parking lots and a couple of different trail maps before we decided on a place to park. Yes, we had looked at the map I linked to above, but we didn’t print it to take with.
Luckily, we did remember the name of the trail was Raven, but the lack of signage really had us wondering if it would be a wasted walk. Well, no time in the woods is wasted but we wanted to see art. We had barely started on the path when we were greeted by these logs full of carvings and we knew we were on the right path.
Yes I know the lighting was the best that day. But guess what, it took us well over a year to even make it up there so I took photos anyways. Shortly after we left the woods, it rained and hailed like crazy!
This little noisy red squirrel made a spectacle of himself and although I had a wide lens on, instead of the huge honkin one, I snapped his photo anyway.
I think he wanted to be a piece of art.
I wonder how long it took to build this nest. Let’s get a little closer.
It is huge! I did climb inside and there was still plenty of room for at least 7 more adults to sit comfortably with me.
Inside the nest. I’m guessing the rocks are supposed to represent eggs?
Dennis tried to create some art of his own while we were there. We call this ‘Shaded Shades’.
There was a little bog with some Pitcher Plants.
But of course the blooms are past their prime.
A monstrous web. I don’t want to see the spider that made it!
More to come.
