      In 2005, Hurricane Katrina toppled many live oaks along Highway 90 between Biloxi and Bay St. Louis. A Florida artist decided to carve the resulting stumps into native animal artforms. He used a chainsaw for most of the carving and you can see < the results today in the median between the divided highway. There are dozens of them along a 15-mile stretch. What's really neat is that they are all free for the viewing. You can see and photograph the art from your vehicle, but the best way to see them is to park and walk along the road (safely, of course) to take closeup pictures of them. If you do so, plan on some hiking and spend a couple of hours there. /div>

      If you go:
      The Welcome Center near Moss Point also has some of the sculptures. Stop there to see them, too. I-110, US90 and MS607 or vice-versa is the best route to see all of the sculptures.
