Local pottery artist Courtney Pernell often hikes and runs the Falls Lake trail section of the MST in Wake and Durham County. She is merging her love of the trail and pottery for “art in the park” on Sunday, February 10 when she encourages us to take a hike and find one of her small pottery stars along the trail. If you are lucky enough to find one, it becomes her gift to you, and example of “trail magic” that many hikers find along the MST. We ask that once you find a pottery star, snap of picture of you on the trail and post it to Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #mst and #pottercourt. Let’s encourage people to hike more and also enjoy the natural outdoor art that we have on the MST at Falls Lake.
