The little traditions one finds

The fun thing about driving is finding the unexpected, a little bit of local tradition, the vista and so it was on this day.

We'd stopped in Chetwynd for information on the roads and as we were leaving the lady said that we really should stop at the chainsaw sculpture competition. We just been viewing the sculptures around the town so thought that it might be fun to watch. She directed us to the recreation center and we were on our way.

Chainsaw sculpture is amazing in that the artists use chainsaws to carve out intricate details on these sculptures. Each artist starts with a huge log, about 2' across and about 4' long. Some have a photo hanging next to them and others have cut a piece of wood off then sketched out a basic design to cut. On one we could see the beginning of a bear head. We wished later that we could see the completed sculpture.
