Pyramid Hill is an amazing park with a large collection of outdoor sculpture (http://www.pyramidhill.org/). After looking at a map, find Oh Belisk near the wedge shaped parking lot.
Near Oh Belisk is a large blue button. This is also near a large wedge shaped parking lot near the lower lake (on the map).
Oh Belisk was designed by John Adduci, who has public art in many cities throughout the UC.
Standing by the Blue Button, walk at 60 degrees to a totem pole. After viewing this interesting art, head in a northerly direction to a big fallen tree that lines up with its stump (on the west side). A crack in the four foot tall stump is the home of Charley’s Cardinal and is covered with bark and an interesting piece of wood. Please cover well.
