A couple of weeks ago we were hiking and geocaching at Kentucky Lake and we all picked up different sticks along the trail that we were using as hiking poles. Go check out the story here.
We liked the cool shapes and colors of the sticks we had picked up, so we decided to keep them. They were all very strong and sturdy, yet lightweight. The bark had naturally peeled off of all of them and the wood was worn smooth. We wiped them down and then simply applied a couple of layers of polyurethane to each one. Now they are sitting at the lake house, just waiting for our next hiking adventure.
I like the way they look, sitting there in the old minnow bucket.
