Chainsaw carving in the park
Was back at Lower Rouge River trail last Weekend. Saturday the township organized a unique little art festival. There were artists selling and demonstrating techniques for Raku pottery, as well as chainsaw carving. Talk about a niche! It was *very* small — two food vendors, and 5 artists, I think… four of them chainsaw artists. Some pretty amazing creations, though.
There was also a Home Depot tent set up where Julianna and Josh built little tool boxes, which they used to carry around their favorite leaves that they found during the day.
After getting lunch from the Tim and Sally’s booth, we walked through the forest for about 20 minutes before heading back to the truck.
A great day to be out in the park, though. Sections of the forest were just starting to hit their peak color. Came back Sunday morning for a few shots with better light — but that’s another post!
Here’s Julianna, Joshua, and Arlene showing off their favorite leaves back at the trailhead.
