Before we left for NOLA I was Skyping with mom (Hi, mom) and she told me she'd recently read an article about the Katrina trees.
After the devastation there were many tree stumps left behind - live oaks and cypress. A man from the Destin/Fort Walton Beach area offered to carve the stumps into works of art honoring the gulf.
As we approached the Mississippi state line on our way back from NO I remembered the info my wise mother imparted to me. We stopped at the visitors bureau and asked about the trees and then headed down Scenic 90.
There were no signs and only general directions given at the bureau so it was like a scavenger hunt. Petey spotted the first one - I would have totally missed it.
We couldn't get pictures of all the trees; there wasn't always a place to safely pull over and stopping in the middle of the road wasn't very smart. Ask me how I know.
