N Pine, Carterville, MO
The late Jerry Pryor and his friend Red Rand took a large Walnut tree
and turned it into this Totem Pole. The tree came form behind Rand's house,
and it stands out front now so it hasn't moved far from its roots. It
is located on N Pine St. between England Hill Rd and railroad tracks on
the east side. This is north of Carterville as you come from Carthage.

Apparently it took them four or five months to transform the tree into
the Totem. Judging by its size that seems fast, but then I have trouble
opening a Walnut, so carving up a a whole Walnut tree would probably
be a lifelong adventure for me.
