This carving is a memorial to Alan Wyatt. Alan died fighting the Missionary Ridge fire. Originally, this carving was done on a tree trunk rooted in the ground, and was eventually snapped off by a thermal vortex.
This is the fifth carving in the series of “Tour of Carvings” that bring you around the Vallecito Lake Community. There are a total of 14 carvings spread around the Vallecito Lake Area for you to find and enjoy. Take a picture with the carving, and use #tourofcarvings on social media!
