Scenic Carving, Missoula, Montana
The river trail behind the Missoula Osprey's ball field features several timberframe shelters crafted with traditional joinery techniques by the Timber Framers Guild. They provide a useful place to sit and enjoy the view or wait out a spring rain shower. I noticed that each unique shelter and bench along this section of trail was donated in memory of a person or organization. And, if you look up, you'll see this extra touch of beauty added to the inner cross timbers of one structure.
