Just a few hours north of Toronto is a true Canadian wilderness escape. Cottage life at its finest with endless lakes and wildlife to explore. In one weekend we explored by car, bike, canoe and foot. On our travels, we go on hikes whenever we can but never have we seen an art gallery outdoors. The sculpture forest is a unique experience and the trees, woodland creatures and insect sounds become part of the exhibit. Not sure if I'm in a spherical house or inside a stone pac-man? Either way, I felt instantly relaxed in the Sculpture Forest. @onhighlands #comewander @myhaliburtonhighlands #myhaliburtonhighlands @sculptureforest A post shared by Siya Zarrabi (@siyazarrabi) on Sep 27, 2019 at 12:42pm PDT\n\nWebsite\nHealth Valley Trail\nPrice: Free\nAddress: 35 Albert St. E., St. Jacobs, ON\nWhy You Need To Go: Along this serene trail, you'll find the Wise Old Oak or "Tree Spirit."

This is Koilos, a sculpture created by Michael Christian for the 2007 Burning Man festival. Afterwards, Koilos made the Distillery District home until 2013, after which it moved to an island on Lake Muskoka. Due to its polarizing effect there, it was moved to Bala, and aptly nicknamed the “Bala Bog Monster”. A recent move down the street to the @johnstons_cranberries seems to have stuck as its forever home. “Reactions to Koilos during its travels have been mixed. While some appreciated the sculpture, many saw it as a ‘frightful eyesore’. With names like ‘beast’ and ‘monster’, it appears Koilos is seen not only as grotesque but also dangerous. And yet Koilos has harmed no one. We adopted Koilos because it reflects the scary beauty we often see in nature.” What do you say? Beauty or beast??
