As an tune-up to Haley’s graduation trip to the Big Five we took an easy stroll through William B. Umstead State Park a North Carolina state park in Wake County, North Carolina. It covers 5,599 acres nestled between the expanding cities of Raleigh, Cary, and Durham, North Carolina. The park has 22 miles of well shaded hiking trails along with many miles of mixed use trails. Our goal was to reach a massive downed oak tree that has been chain saw carved by local artists Jerry Redi and Randy Boni. The art work features animals, tree branches and leaves.
