I think this is my favorite tree. Ever. It’s huge and hollwed out inside, big enough to fit three people. My vertically challenged self can just walk right in. We discovered it in the fall while on our annual family photo shoot and I found it again on our snowy saturday hike. I was so excited to show it to him !

I wish I would have known this tree when I was little. I would have had so many adventures in this tree ! It would have been my secret house, my castle, my hideout, my own “dreaming tree”.

Standing here
The old man said to me,
“Long before these crowded streets
Here stood my dreaming tree.”
Below it he would sit
For hours at a time
Now progress takes away
What forever took to find
And now he’s falling hard
He feels the falling dark
How he longs to be
Beneath his dreaming tree
