Oak Carvings Of Ike's Remains

While in Galveston we decided to go on a walking tour of some of the carved oak trees. These trees were all remains of destroyed oak trees following Hurricane Ike in 2008. I did not have an official walking tour pamphlet showing the location of each sculpture on a handy dandy map, but I did get information from the internet. From that, I googled the locations and made my own map, selecting an area (about 10 blocks by 5 blocks in the historic district) that was managable for Ward and I to walk through. Of the 36 sculptures listed we photographed 21.
