Snowshoeing and the Arts

Continuing from the previous post's tale of snowshoeing in Gauja National Park...

The snowshoeing trail we did was really short, so we decided to follow another random trail that didn't seem to be heading back to the parking lot. Along this trail, we were surprised to find a series of sculptures, hewn fairly roughly out of tree stumps. Mostly they were figurative, including a couple women, a bear doing some sort of salute or dance or something, and a couple that it was hard to tell what was going on. Definitely not something we were expecting out in the middle of the woods. Of course, even the middle of the woods in Latvia is rarely all that far from civilization.
