Stone Quarry Hill Art Park

artpark47

Today we went to the Stone Quarry Hill Art Park in Cazenovia. It's a pretty neat idea. Sculptures that are inspired by art meeting nature combined with plenty of trails to walk on where you find the sculptures. They've also had exhibitions of dance and music there. I've NEVER been and so today, since it was so gorgeous, we decided to head over there to check it out. We had the place mostly to ourselves, so even though the rule is "pets on a leash" we let Dahlia off. I sort of see "pets on a leash" as a thing for people whose dogs aren't well-trained enough to be off and responsive while in a new area. Yeah maybe that makes me feel bad, but the other people we passed weren't bothered by her in the least and we got one "oh wow she's so well-behaved."

So...onto the pictures!

The view from the top of the hill.

Dahlia was, of course, fascinated by the grass.

I think they're making fun of us.

I can't even begin to understand what this means.

This one was made out of ceramic and pretty badly beaten up due to our weather, I'm sure.

This one was called "Woodland Nostalgia" and we sort of laughed at it. We think they were mocking us too. You could go inside and look at nature. This is like my new favourite photo of David.

Dahlia was fascinated by whatever was underneath it.

In fact, my dog who is afraid to walk in our damned bathroom...hell, who is afraid to walk NEAR our bathroom...crawled underneath it. WTF.

Dahlia was totally fascinated by this sculpture. I think there were probably little creatures living inside it.

I loved this sculpture.

David, due to his height, got a much better picture of it.

Dahlia really liked the pond!

Of course, it's hard to take photos of sculptures sometimes when you have a dog who liked to get in the way. "Oh hi there."

The path takes you right through this sculpture, which was made out of decommissioned light poles.

This may be one of my favourite photos of the day.

This was my favourite sculpture. I imagine David's office looking like this someday.

And a panorama of one of the fields.

After the art park, we headed over to Bouckville where we had a nice lunch at a hamburger stand (our first soft ice cream of the year!) and then David checked out a few of the antique stores while Dahlia and I hung out in the car. It was a really nice day.

This looks like a really fun place to walk and enjoy an afternoon. Kuma would definitely have to be leashed, though.

Wow! Every single photo in this set fascinated me. I'd love to go for a walk there!

That one sculpture which Dahlia was interested in... I can imagine Emma climbing ALL OVER IT.
