We traveled from Orlando at 6AM but, we made some few stops along the way. Our road trip to Mississippi was not that tiring. At noon time, I treat my husband to lunch at Ruby Tuesday along Marianna, Florida about 3 hours to to our destination. We just sit and enjoyed our meal for more than an hour then, back on the road. When we reached the Mississippi Welcome Center, hubby went inside for a free coffee. I stayed outside and took these pictures. I did not noticed these wood carvings last September.I thought these wood carvings are newly added feature to this area. There were 3 dead trees that I saw with carvings of known birds in the Gulf coast. I thought this is really clever of them to add this attraction. During the Katrina in 2005, there were a lot of Oak trees toppled down by the hurricane. Some talented wood carvers shared their talents to use the dead trees as art pieces. These trees becomes an attraction along the Gulf Coast area. Here is the zoom in of one of the carvings. The details are miticulous. Stop by in Mississippi Welcome Center and you will see this amazing artwork.
