Young deer in our campground


Every two years Chetwynd hosts the Chain Saw Carving contest. The winners have their pieces displayed along the main highway in the center of town near the Visitor Center.

I don’t know how they decide where the previous winners’ pieces go, but they are distributed throughout the city. After walking the main area, we noticed some up on the next block and beyond. Not knowing how long of a walk it would be (and it was getting quite warm) we hopped in the cars and drove around the rest of town.

We ended up at a park with some carved dinosaurs and an interpretive sign describing the dinosaurs that left fossils in this area. There was a large slab with dinosaur footprints in it.

Then we headed back towards our campground and found more carvings. It is amazing that these are all carved with different sized chain saws.

We sat around in the early evening (social hour) outside our coach and were delighted to have a shy visitor watching us before she slipped into the forest.
