Enchanted Forest: Tom Rhodes Tree Carving Trail

A short dirt road with trails on either side. Follow the trails and find the tree carvings. I took photos of 68, but I don't know if that is all of them or not. Tom has sold the property but the carvings are still there to be seen. There are arrangements in place to preserve his work if a developer should ever come.

[Leo Cecil, 07/24/2020]

Tom, now in his eighties, has been chiseling into the trees since 2004. He's completed close to 100 carvings.
