Chetwynd the logging / mining town 100 km to the east has a chain saw carving contest every summer and this year was no exception.

These artists do some phenomenal work with machines of many sizes while I’m having a great day if I can get mine to cut straight..

I have been intending to stop and take some pictures of a few of the two dozen sculptures situated about the town and finally took time to get two.

Many are cut from a single log. Pegasus, which has been placed in front of the town hall is one of those that has attached parts; the wings, of course.
In the second one Mama Eagle is banking around the tree trunk and bear as two young eagles look out of the nest.
