tree sculpture tour

I've never been on a tree sculpture tour.

When hurricane Ike blew through Galveston Island, he left downed trees in his wake. Even though much of Galveston's tree canopy was lost, Island artists found a way to resurrect the trees into images of beauty. Many of the downed trees were turned into gorgeous works of art-tree sculptures! They are located throughout the island in people's yards and gardens and in area parks (photos and a tour guide.) These trees give a victorious feeling of beauty and regrowth to an area devastated yet rebuilding.

That I'd like to see.
