I have conflicting information about who carved the trees along the MS Gulf Coast (Hwy. 90) was it Marlin Miller of Fort Walton Beach, Fla, or Dayton Scoggins of Mississippi?
Thanks,

I stand corrected! All I ever knew of was M. Miller. Thanks for clearing this up for me.

I guess they both did some carvings. Now, of course, I'm curious as to which ones each man did. LOL

I was on Highway 90 walking the median today taking pictures for my own gallery. The detail on each and every carving, regardless of the artist, is just absolutely breath-taking and extraordinarily accurate. My thanks to each artist.
