In the ski resort of Breckenridge CO, the town commissioned Thomas Dambo to create one of his trolls for the town. It was part of the arts festival and was to stay until the weather had it way with it, or was vandalized. The festival started and people came from all around the town. The news spread the word, and more people came. It was a small hike to get to see Isak Heartstone. His namesake was given to him be the artiest when some of the towns children gave the artiest a heart shape stone, which he placed into Isak. As Isak popularity grew, so did the people that wanted to see him. However, that was Isak undoing. The town folk that live near the trail complained that there was too many people going to see the troll. an emergency concise meeting was held, and Isak was torn down with chainsaws.  Out cry was loud, but Isak is now somewhere, in parts, waiting to see if he'll be put together.

Thanks, Dennis.

That's a nice shot, and a good story, Dennis.  My condolences to Isak's "family".  B)

So original.  Too bad it was torn down.

 

Are there homes near the trail?

Thanks all.

The trail the town folks wanted to use was a light trail about a mile and a half long. He was hidden behind a rock pile. The trail starts near condos. And about 3/4 in, it passes another set of condos. Even though there was a lot of foot traffic, no trash was on the trail. Everyone followed the rules.

The first complaint was because there wasnt enough parking, which is ture. So the consile set up a shuttle from the main town parking lot. Then the complaint was that the residents said the people and kids would fall and get hurt. On a scale of 1-10, ten would be difficult, but not Mount Everest, the trail would be -5.

I took this with the D850 and the 28-70/2.8 lens. I was able to recover highlight details rather well. Conditions was low heavy clouds for a snow storm. Bremen ridge is a ski resort.

Thanks, Dennis.
