Strange visitors

by Berckmans Peter January. 19, 2021 355 views

As I told you in my previous post, the day we had snow there were some strange visitors walking the woods. Trolls came out to enjoy the snow. They are big and it looks like they are made of wood. The first one we saw was just sitting on a boardwalk in a quiet part of the footpath.

We came at a small old building and a foot was danglin in the doorway, when I looked up a big face was looking at me.

There is a small pond where the water is very still and deep, nice to dream away in, but what did we see in the water.

Yes the reflection of another giant troll

A nice part of the walk is a big slope, where you can learn the basics of paragliding and other sports. This time however a romantic couple was lying on the slope.

The gentle giants are quite an attraction on this walk, kids love them, they can climb on them and the trolls not care. Also every troll has an own story to tell.

Great photos. The sculptures have been very imaginatively and creatively placed in the landscape. They work really well.

Are these trolls built by Thomas Danbo? If so he sure gets around. I think a while back I had a few photos of them at the Morton Arboretum in Chicago. I especially like #9.
