That's cool, my sister and I paint rocks and leave them along our travels. Seems to make people happy.

That is a great idea. Your carving makes camping for someone about exploring and discovery, perhaps as opposed to just watching TV at a different location.

I occasionally leave a gourd birdhouse (painted or wood-burned) as a thank you for campground or park staff.

That's really cool.

When we hiked a very small portion of the Appalachian Trail, we were given a wooden whistle a man carved out of tiny tree branches and gave to people hiking the trail.

A great idea.... thinking.... what could I leave.....

$50 fine in a CO state park for putting something in/on/around a tree.

Cool idea though.

"Dead" is punishment enough.

I know you meant "deed."

The punishment of being "dead" isn't good no matter how you carve it or where you leave it.

Great job and idea. Do you use any special kind of knife or wood carving tool?

I whittled this chain from a piece of aspen . It took about 1 hour per link.
